Pal's Takeaway is celebrating its one-year anniversary Friday with a slider fest. Not so much a fest, really, as a normal day of business, only one filled with three types of mini sandwiches. Pal's Jeff Mason says there'll be a slow-roasted and pulled Becker Lane pork number, an American Kobe corned beef, and a house-smoked whitefish slider. "It's the kind you get from Russ & Daughters in New York," Mason said of the latter, "Lake Superior whitefish, brined for maybe an hour. Dave [Knopp, Mason's partner] smokes them really slow, so they have a lovely unctuous flavor." The sliders will be priced individually, with a break if you order all three.

As for surviving a first year that coincided with the Great Recession, Mason said it's been a challenge. "It's hard to change the menu every day, hard to think of things to put between bread." Still, he said, he feels blessed to have made it.

  • 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.'"
