Limón Rotisserie's Chicken Still Shines

Limón Rotisserie satisfies two minor yet rarely realized requirements for happiness: juicy, salty roast chicken halves with tasty, well-prepared sides for $10 (okay, it's actually $9.50) and truly cold beer. We've gotten so sick of sucking down lukewarm Pabst drafts…

Should S.F. Doctors Write Prescriptions for Farmers' Market Produce?

Let's see: A bottle of codeine syrup, some Nasonex, and a bunch of arugula. Doctors at three health centers in Massachusetts aren't just telling their patients to eat their vegetables; they're handing out coupons making it more affordable for them…

Meat Locker: Taylor Boetticher Takes Down a Pig at Bloodhound

We sometimes wonder if a 13th-century sage ever could have imagined that hog butchery might one day captivate the imaginations of citizens more than, say, puppet shows and bits of recited verse. We doubt it, but indeed in San Francisco…

  • 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.'"
