Fat Tuesday in the Fillmore

Where: 1300 on Fillmore, 1300 Fillmore (at Eddy), 771-7100

When: Tonight, Mar. 8, 7:30-10:30 p.m.

Cost: A la carte pricing

The rundown: Maybe San Francisco isn't in the top tier of Mardi Gras cities. Our orgies of letting loose come later, in the dual guise of Carnaval (letting loose factor: 5) and the Folsom Street Fair (letting loose factor: scary), with its dog masks, harnesses, and black jockstraps. Why is Mardi Gras proper only a pink dot on the calendar here? Maybe because it's a holiday of the Catholic world, even if ― in New Orleans ― there's a healthy amount of showing your tits, or man parts. Nevertheless, if you're craving some connection to the Zulu Parade, head out after work for the last gasp of the four-day Fat Tuesday in the Fillmore, where 1300 on Fillmore is serving up a taste of the Big Easy, and where no one says your tube top can't experience a spontaneous wardrobe malfunction. Quite by accident, of course.

Menu highlights: Hurricanes, Abita beers, po'boy sliders, fried oysters, catfish

  • 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.'"
