Andrew Zimmern is shooting an episode of his eat-anything Travel Channel series Bizarre Foods in San Francisco, according to a blog post from forageSF's Iso Rabins, who's been asked to participate. A commenter to Rabins' blog stated that Shirley Fong-Torres of Wok Wiz tours has also been approached to guide Zimmern through Chinatown, but it appears that neither has made a commitment.

This city isn't likely to have the strangest bites that Zimmern has ever eaten. But he'd do well sampling local treats like 4505's Zilla Dog, foie gras ice cream sandwiches from Humphry Slocombe, the Ritz-Carlton's Lincecum, and balut pâté crostini from Intramuros.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
