Lunchtime self-protection rule number 403: If you're standing outside Dennis Leary's downtown sandwich shop The Sentinel, fretting over your 30 seconds in front of the menu before the fast-flowing line washes you up to the counter, and the woman behind you says, "GET THE LAMB MEATBALLS," in a tone that usually proceeds the reading of someone's Miranda rights, you obey her.

If you are a food writer who ends up on a park bench minutes afterward, lips gory with tomato sauce, clutching the last red-stained hunk of bread in your fist, fretting over how quickly you devoured three of the tenderest, feta-flecked meatballs that have ever graced a seeded roll, you may feel the need to pass the command on.

The Sentinel 37 New Montgomery (at Stevenson Alley), 284-9960

  • 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.'"
