  • Missed summer? Have it by the glass in the Jalisco Cobbler.

We'll admit that we're cocktail nerds--er, connoisseurs--and while we readily enjoy nuanced and complex cocktails, we most appreciate the kinds of drinks that find the balance of accessibility with an interesting twist. Joel Teitelbaum's Jalisco Cobbler ($12) at the newly renovated Starlight Room is that kind of drink.

By building on the classic cobbler (a traditional mixture of alcohol, sugar, and fruit) and adding a lightly spiced homemade black pepper syrup, it adds tingle to the palate without numbing it. The finale of fresh strawberries get crushed then mixed with a reposado tequila, lime, bitters, and the black pepper syrup, that tastes like the last lingering moments of Indian summer.

Harry Denton's Starlight Room, 450 Powell (at Sutter), 395-8595

  • 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.'"
