Santa Rosa's Floravita 2000 makes a beverage with extracts from the black elder tree (specifically elderflower and elderberry), unspecified fruit juices (only 18 percent), and spring water. While we can't attest to the manufacturer's claims of the flu-fighting efficacy of the abundance of anthocyanins and bioflavinoids from the elderflower and elderberry extracts, we can recommend the drink's light floral sweetness as a refresher. We'd also imagine it might also mix pretty well with St. Germain, a liqueur made from elderflower. Find Floravita 2000 locally at Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom, at Division).

  • 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.'"
