Let's do lunch:

WTF, buddy, you're living in a Mediterranean climate -- eat like it once in a while. SF Weekly restaurant critic Meredith Brody knows the perfect place to start: the ezme and iskender kebap at A La Turca (869 Geary at Larkin, 345-1011).

Drink therapy:

It opens at 6 a.m. -- you know, just in case you didn't make it to the liquor store last night. By 5 p.m., the barstools are warm and squishy, good time to show up for a cheap cold one. The 500 Club (500 Guerrero at 17th St., 861-2500).

It's like Cheers, only the regulars sometimes vomit in the restroom. Make a bleary connection over nightly beer specials at Shanghai Kelly's (2064 Polk at Broadway, 771-3300). Check the Web for details.

  • 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.'"
