The Rundown: We love our booze. Cocktails? Certainly. Wine? Uh huh. Beer? Sure. While we enjoy all those equally, it's sparkling wine we love the most. It has versatility, variety, bubbles, pairs well with most food, and you can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you were stuck on a desert isle, and you had a stash of sparkling wine, you'd just call it vacation.

  • 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.'"
