At Zaré at Fly Trap (606 Folsom), there are many reminiscences on growing up in Iran (since chef/owner Hoss Zaré and cocktail director Reza Esmaili both did). One especially addictive and dangerous one is the Minted Memory, made of Bombay gin, Pimm's No.1, minted vinegar syrup, and lemon. Minted vinegar is one of those ingredients that sounds strange but works well, cutting into the harshness of the gin in a pretty remarkable way. It's all as cool as the cucumber slice that floats in it, emiting a yummy fragrance and subtly flavoring the concoction.

  • 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.'"
