It was more like a half moon outside on the night we stopped by Basil Canteen (1489 Folsom) and enjoyed the restaurant's Full Moon of house-infused ginger vodka with juices of pear and cranberry. This cocktail is so well-balanced that it would be perfectly easy to drink it a little bit too quickly, but sipping it slowly is a rewarding experience, as the spears of fresh ginger bring out a deeper flavor the longer it marinates. If you enjoy that pleasant little burn of the root, chewing on the spears provides a stimulating counterpoint to the drink.

  • 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.'"
