The Cupid's Arrow cocktail at Puccini and Pinetti is a nice choice for this lovers' weekend, if only for drowning a lonelyheart's sorrows. It's essentially a margarita, made with Partida tequila, muddled blood orange, lime juice, and simple syrup, with a float of Grand Marnier. At first we hoped the stuff on the rim was sugar, but after the first sip it was clear what nice balance a bit of sodium added to the mix.

Puccini and Pinetti: 129 Ellis (at Powell), 392-5500.

  • 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.'"
