When Trick Dog opened this past January, its slick Pantone color guide-themed menu was talked about as much as the innovative cocktails. Now Serious Eats brings news that the Bon Vivants have shaken things up at their Mission bar with a whole new drink menu based on classic records. The result is a seriously cool-looking record album (check out the whole slideshow), and Serious Eats senior editor Maggie Hoffman reports that the cocktails -- most with "Pacific Rim, almost tropical flavors" according to bar manager Morgan Schick -- taste as good as their packaging looks.

Why There's a Line at Trick Dog (Hint: It's Not Why You Think)

Back when the Pantone menu debuted, we heard that Trick Dog patrons were pocketing them on a fairly regular basis. These seem way more appealing to steal, but they're also bulkier and harder to conceal. Let's hope these records stay on the shelves.

  • 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.'"
