When a table of two ladies first tasted the Smoked Cup cocktail at

Dosa on Fillmore (1700 Fillmore at Geary) -- a tall, brown glass garnished with an olive, cocktail onion, cucumber, and chunks and peels of citrus -- we both proclaimed it to be a "man's drink." But as the ice in the blend of Benesin Organic Mezcal, Pimm's No. 1 Cup, black cardamom tincture, ginger beer, cucumber, and smoked sea salt began to melt and dilute the party, touches of sweet youth (ginger beer) and subtle femininity (cardamom and salt) came out to play. This Cup is enjoyable no matter what your chromosomal makeup.

  • 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.'"
