Juicy and Delicious 

Wednesday, Jun 11 2008
It's like if Busby Berkeley, Gregory Hines, and Merle Haggard collaborated on a performance project: The Barbary Coast Cloggers do kind of a Western hand-holding stompy-boy ballet thing. It could either be incredibly gay, or incredibly not gay. In this case, it's incredibly gay, which is funny since clogging is also the official state dance of both Kentucky and North Carolina, according to Wiki-not-always-correct-pedia. The Barbary Coast Cloggers appear as part of the enormous and enormously talent-filled Fresh Meat Festival. Hula, hip-hop, radical genderqueer nun opera, and traditional Colombian dance are among the featured styles, as curated by artistic director Sean Dorsey -- whose own acclaimed work is some of the best in the city. All of the above, like the cloggers, draw from the rich transgender and queer communities of the Bay Area.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
