Yesterday's New York Times weaves a magical tale of our spirited culture with Gregory Dicum's "In San Francisco Bars, a Cocktail Is Not Just a Drink," which profiles The Alembic (1725 Haight), Beretta (1199 Valencia), Bourbon and Branch (501 Jones), and Clock Bar (335 Powell) and also makes mention of Anchor Distillery, Distillery No. 209 (Pier 50) and retail store Cask (17 3rd St). Now is as good a time as any to frequent these places and appreciate that they've been shown respect by such an esteemed source; sometimes it takes an outsider to remind us what we've got. Don't forget to tip your bartender or mixologist well. -- Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
