Let's do lunch:

SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody recommends checking out the pelmeny and stuffed cabbage at Cinderella Bakery & Restaurant (436 Balboa near Sixth Ave.), 751-9690.

Drink therapy:

Nobody can drink like Aussies. And while they might know diddly about America's favorite pastime, the folks at down-under-themed South restaurant are certainly game: South's baseball season happy hour offers $5 bar bites and beers and $6 wines (even on non-game days), 3-6:30 p.m. South 330 Townsend #101 (near Fourth St.), 974-5599.

Halfsy Hour at Zinnia restaurant's bar and lounge features half-price specialty cocktails, wines by the glass, and premium brewskis. Continue the cutesy theme by ordering halfsy portions from chef Sean O'Brien's din-din menu. Zinnia 500 Jackson (at Montgomery), 956-7300.

Livin' the life:

It's night two of Sicilian cooking maven Fabrizia Lanza's swing through the Bay Area. Tonight, Lanza (in collaboration with David Tanis) rolls up her sleeves to cook downstairs at Chez Panisse. Think bucatini con le sarde and spezzatine di agnello. But unless you've got $125 (the price includes wine) and, um, a rezzie, you'll be stuck merely imagining them. Chez Panisse 1517 Shattuck (near Vine), Berkeley; 510-548-5525.

  • 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.'"
