  • After a long day of lawyering, there's nothing quite as chill-worthy as the bar at Eos Wine Salon.
The place: Eos Restaurant and Wine Salon, 901 Cole (at Carl), 566-3063

The hours: Sun.-Thurs., 5:30-7 p.m.

The deals: Wines for $5/glass, $10/half bottle, $20/bottle; sake or sangria at $5/glass; oysters at $1 apiece; snacks at $5 each

The digs: Intimate wine bar adjoining Eos (the restaurant) is an attractive local hangout in blond wood and candlelight with big picture windows looking out on Cole Valley's passing parade. A well-heeled clientele relax at scattered tables and an attractive silver-topped bar, swirling and sipping after a long, hard day of lawyering. The racks and shelves of bottles and glassware reflect the bar's vino-centric outlook and aesthetic.

The verdict: Eos's extensive, impressive, carefully crafted wine list is the basis for an ever-changing selection of whites, reds, and sparklers offered during happy hour for a most reasonable $5 per glass, $10 per half bottle and $20 per bottle. If the day's five-option selection doesn't bewitch you, glasses of chilled sake or house-made seasonal sangria are available at $5 per glass, as is one of the establishment's wine-based house cocktails. When you get hungry, there are raw oysters for $6 per half dozen and elegant snackage like potato cakes with pineapple chutney, ahi and salmon sushi, and Piave Vecchio Italian cow's milk formaggio for $5 apiece. This is a classy place to relax to the sound of clinking glassware and murmured conversation.

Overall grade: B+

  • 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.'"
