We needed a little heat in our life this week, so we went for Maya's splendiforously named Big Nose Goes to Mexico, a cocktail blending two tequilas (Cabrito Blanco and Jimador Reposado) with dark rum, guava, and orgeat, served with a flaming, wildly inverted lemon half. Fiery drinks can be cloying (even for an avowed sugar fiend), but we were pleasantly surprised by the reserve this drink managed to show. And that's taking into account the wallop of tequilas and the shall we say not-subtle presentation.

Maya: 303 Second St. (at Harrison).

  • 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.'"
