The time is ripe for kombucha on tap ― heck, they even have it at Whole Foods now ― and S.F.'s Rana Chang is advancing the conversation with the idea of kombucha happy hours for her indie company House Kombucha. They'll take place every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. at Live Sushi Bistro (1 Gilbert at Brannan) starting next week. The kombucha will cost a quarter an ounce for those who bring their own clean, marked containers, less for those who purchase half-gallon growlers, or customers can simply enjoy a glass (and a snack/meal, if so inclined) at the restaurant. Live Sushi is located upstairs from the commercial kitchen where Chang does her brewing.

This weekend, though, Chang will host a bar launch party (and unofficial Green Festival afterparty) around the corner from Live Sushi in a private warehouse location. Rose black, vanilla orchid root, smoked pear, jasmine green, and lavender green kombucha will be available for tasting and sale alongside a selection of food carts including Good Foods Catering, Lumpia Cart, and new cookie vendor Mad4Madeleines, who recently delighted us with a strawberry-guava variation on the French classic.

  • 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.'"
