Some restaurants you imprint with certain memories gleaned from your first meal there, impressions reproducible no matter how different the reality of later visits. Which is to say that a grilled cheese with tomato soup at Paragon weeks before the first pitch at AT&T still has the bite of game day, the frenzy of flagging the bartender for a second martini all mixed up with the nutty tang of mixed cheddars, juxtaposed with the sweet-sour bite of tomato soup. Even when there're only three guys at an otherwise deserted bar, lazily glancing up at the closed captioning on Outside the Lines.

Paragon 701 Second St. (at Townsend), 537-9020

  • 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.'"
