SFoodie Recommends: Taking Liberties on St. Patrick's Day 

Wednesday, Mar 10 2010

March most definitely means the golden-emerald chance to celebrate Ireland and St. Patrick's Day by tippling fine Irish beer and whiskey. This year, you don't need to guzzle your green beer for six hours straight without stopping for a food break. Stretch out the good times over a one-week period, and even bring the family or dog along if you like. Starting on March 14, the Liberties Bar and Restaurant (998 Guerrero at 22nd St.) has a Week of Long Pours (think Guinness, Kilkenny draught, Redbreast 12-year-old whiskey, and Black Bush Irish whiskey), with hearty brunch, lunch, and dinner plates to soak up the booze. Yes, there's the standard corned beef and cabbage or cottage pie made by new owner Kjerstie Utting, but you can also swoop in on a curried samosa made with Irish bacon, black pudding, and curried potatoes. Walk-ins are welcome, or reserve a table by calling 282-6789. (And no, you can't really reserve anything on St. Patrick's Day.)

  • 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.'"
