Where: The Boothby Center for the Beverage Arts, 1161 Mission (at Eighth St.), Suite 120

When: Wed., June 8, 7-9 p.m.

Cost: $75 through Eventbrite

The Rundown: Joanne Weir, local celebrity chef and host of PBS television series Joanne Weir's Cooking Class, is teaming up with bartenders Ronaldo Colli from Americano and H. Joseph Ehrmann from Elixir to bring us an evening of tequila-based food and drinks. Caliente! Weir will teach students to make chorizo hand-pies, guacamole soup, smoked trout, and tequila quesadillas with summer's tomato salsa, bay scallop ceviche. The cocktail menu features two cocktails using Jose Cuervo Platino Tequila (about $55/750ml bottle), which is quite tasty despite coming from such a large producer. It'll be a great event for those wanting to eat and drink their tequila -- yeah, that's us! The class includes a signed copy of Weir's tequila tome, Tequila: A Guide to Types, Flights, Cocktails, and Bites so you can re-create the magic at home.

  • 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.'"
