Let's do lunch:

Some days you just feel like going classic. SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody recommends one better : a cleaned-up take on an otherwise hackneyed classic, aka the chicken Waldorf salad at Spruce (3640 Sacramento at Spruce).

Drink therapy:

It's Micro Monday at Café Flore in the Castro (2298 Market at Noe): $4 Fernet Branca shots and $1 off Stellas, Anchor Steams, and Hoegaardens in, well, the city's original ho garden.

Turns out that, like that story about bathtub organ harvesting, the R-month oyster rule is urban myth. Celebrate with $1 specimens and $3.50 pints at Hog Island Oyster Co. (One Ferry Building at The Embarcadero), 5-7 p.m.

  • 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.'"
