Sometimes you just have to let it all hang out. That isn't usually on a Monday night, mind you, but when an event like this comes along, concessions must be made. So prepare to kick back this Monday, March 9, and quaff some fantastic French wine at the very special Gros Winemaker Dinner at one of the most elegant restaurants in town, Spruce (3640 Sacramento at Spruce). The Gros family, known for its outstanding Pinot Noir, presides over one of the finest domaines in Vosne-Romanée in the Burgundy region of France. And lucky you: The domaine's star wine, Clos des Réas, is on the menu with four other wines, paired with a menu by chef Mark Sullivan that truly looks to be fit for royalty.

Take a look: pomelo and green apple salad (paired with Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc 2006); roasted monkfish with pancetta and braised cabbage (with Chambolle-Musigny 2005); bone-marrow consommé with dark fruit preserves (with Vosne-Romanée 2006); roasted leg of goat with winter vegetables (with Vosne-Romanée, Clos des Réas 2005); and farmstead cheese (with Vosne-Romanée, Clos des Réas 1996). The dinner costs $150, exclusive of tax and gratuity. For reservations, call 931-5100.

  • 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.'"
