Remember all the time you spent this year out on the sidewalk, enduring hour-plus waits for a table at Flour + Water (2401 Harrison at 20th St.)? Ah, good times. Well, you'll be able to say farewell to 2009 from the comfort of the restaurant's interior. For New Year's Eve, Flour + Water is actually taking reservations for every seat, a first for the place that sets aside a majority of its seats for walk-ins. Chef Thomas McNaughton plans three separate prix-fixe seatings with food from the Northern Italian province of Emilia Romagna, home to Bologna. Times are 5:30, 7:45, and 10 p.m. The dinner is $70, with special wines and other pairings available for additional cost. Bollito misto and tortellini en brodo are likely menu choices, as will suckling pig and lentils with cottechino (the latter traditional New Year's dish symbolizing good fortune). Want a piece of that good fortune? Reserve by calling 826-7000 between 1 p.m. and 8 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.'"
