  • Got $25? Splurge on a night out -- for two.
Pig Out Tuesdays rev up again tonight at Betelnut (2030 Union at Buchanan). Special pricing is designed to appeal to pig-friendly diners groaning through the Great Recession. At $24.88 for two people, it can make a night out seem affordable and, well, tasty. You get a platter of roast pork with wok-tossed organic farmers' market veggies, served with jasmine rice. Cosentino Pinot Noir is also on special, $5 per glass. Regarding that pork, Betelnut chef Alex Ong pointed out on his Twitter feed that "this is version 7.9, crispy skin problems solved. Don't forget the Beggars Chicken, too." That Beggar's Chicken is another Betelnut favorite, with the power, possibly, to appease the non-swine fan in your life. Reservations taken at OpenTable.

  • 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.'"
