Absinthe (398 Hayes) calls their Galapagos, which is made with pisco, kaffir lime that's been muddled in peppery syrup, lemon-lime juice and a splash of grapefruit juice, "A Xanadoozle creation named in honor of Kurt Vonnegut's modern classic of the same name." Brandied cherries sit on the bottom of the glass, waiting to reward the drinker with an intense final fusion of flavor. We also just discovered that the Galapagos made 7X7's list of The Big Eat SF: 100 Things to Try Before You Die, charting in at a respectable number 45. We agree: Try it before you die, but preferably sooner.

  • 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.'"
