It's 3 p.m. and the FiDi is sweltering. You need something to quench your thirst, something nonalcoholic since you have to (dammit) return to work. And not too sweet, either. If you're near California and Drumm, you really ought to wander into Café Terminus, grab a barstool, and ask your friendly barman to make you an Almond-ade.

New Orleans Iced Coffee from Blue Bottle

Eric, the bartender, created this drink when asked for something refreshing, light on the sugar, and a bit out-of-the-ordinary. He delivered a lovely, tart version of lemonade with a Terminus twist: half an ounce of orgeat syrup, fresh lemon juice, soda water, and plenty of fresh mint. You get a little hit of almond as you drink, enjoying the cool of the café and shelling out a mere $2.00 for this nine-ounce beverage. So very civilized,yes? And if you absolutely can't bear going back to the office, an enticing cocktail is always an option.

Café Terminus, 16 California, 952-0481.

  • 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.'"
