Anyone who follows the restaurant business in this town knows that thriving for two years (hell, even surviving) is no small feat, especially for a fine-dining establishment. To celebrate its second birthday, New American spot Spruce (3640 Sacramento at Spruce) is throwing a special dinner this Sunday. Chef Mark Sullivan's Celebration Menu rings true to the Spruce mantra of local, local, local. Its three courses focus on local farmers and their products, with each course getting the "two-way" treatment.

First: Dirty Girl heirloom tomatoes, prepared in a tomato salad with Gioia burrata and rice-wine vinaigrette and in a gazpacho. Next: Grimaud Farms guinea hen, the breast wrapped in Hobbs applewood-smoked bacon, and the leg prepared confit style with summer vegetables and jus. Dessert: Hamada Farms two stone-fruits crostata with vanilla bean ice cream. Word has it that there'll also be a special birthday surprise.

It's happening Sunday, August 2, $55 per person, plus $20 for wine pairings. Spruce's regular menu will also be available. Call 351-1212.

  • 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.'"
