The descriptor of "artisanal lemonade" put us off trying the Bay Area-made Hey, Honey! for the past few months that it has been available at local markets like Rainbow Grocery and Other Avenues. C'mon, we thought, even lemonade is now artisanal? How much more handmade can something be than to squeeze a lemon in your hand?

But don't let this hoity tag put you off like it did to us, for judging this drink by the words on the label is a mistake. Whatever you want to call it instead, the strawberry basil variety that we finally caved in and tried is some really good lemonade. All of the varieties are sweetened with honey (hence the name) but this is the one that tastes like it just came out of a star bartender's blender.

  • 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.'"
