  • What are they smiling about? Syracuse was knocked out in the second round.

Maybe you've watched all the other games at home, and you want company for the big one. Maybe you can't figure out where else to find men. Whatever your reason to watch the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship game in a bar in the Marina, consider this incantation: "$3 22 oz. Gigantic Glass Coors Light." It's only one of the drink specials at Jake's Steaks, and it has so much magic in its every word, and in its philosophical entirety:

It isn't meant to be taken singly ("$3"), yet it is "Gigantic." And 22 ounces of light beer -- this is some kind of mage's riddle. Why does it even exist? Have another one. It's in glass, after all. Everyone knows basketball bracket-play is mystical, anyway. You make plans, you pony dollars, but only the seers and time will tell what is truly fated. Tonight's championship game is a literal dogfight: the UConn Huskies against the Butler Bulldogs; you don't want to be alone for the big one.

Jake's Steaks will have the championship game at 6:21 p.m. Admission is free.

  • 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.'"
