It hasn't supplanted the pomegranate in popularity (and probably never will, due to its tendency to skew bitter), but the açai berry does pack more antioxidants than the pom. Cortez (550 Geary at Jones) puts together an Açai Cocktail containing Ketel One Citroen vodka, Veev açai liqueur, honey, yuzu (the Japanese citrus fruit), sweet Moscato wine, and rosemary. The honey and dessert wine correct any trace of tartness from the Veev, and the rosemary gives it all a bracing bouquet that registers as refreshing. And just think about all those antioxidants you're wallowing in.

  • 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.'"
