Genuine signs of the fall season can be pretty hard to come by in San Francisco -- few falling leaves, no seasonal chill – but, luckily, those who yearn for a little taste of seasonal change can get their fill at Aqua (252 California at Battery), one of the city's most refined and critically acclaimed fine dining spots. Until the end of October, chef Laurent Manrique and chef de cuisine Ron Boyd are presenting an Autumn Mushroom Tasting Menu, featuring mushrooms harvested on or around Mount Shasta. Menu highlights include porcini in a soufflé with smoked shallots and foie gras; chanterelles and yellowfoot mushrooms with Atlantic cod, fennel, sunchoke, slow egg yolk, and marjoram; and lobster mushrooms with Maine lobster, house-cured bacon, and truffle. The seven-course menu coasts $150 per person, plus $85 for sommelier-chosen wine pairing. For reservations, call 956-9662, or sign up online.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
