Let's do lunch:

It's the threshold to the holiday weekend, but before stepping into the realm of ribs and brats, have a last fling with something vivid in a completely different way. SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody recommends the sindhi chicken biriyani made with Punjabi basmati rice and kabli chana (spiced, buttery chickpeas) at Shalimar (532 Jones at O'Farrell, 928-0333).

Drink therapy:

Brazilians can make even an ordinary Friday feel like a holiday, especially with $5 happy-hour mojitos and caipirinhas on an open tab. Get giddy at Bossa Nova (138 Eighth St. at Minna, 558-8004), 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Soak up the Barbary Coast ambience at nostalgic prices: $1 off all draft beers and well drinks (not to mention the perennial $3 cans of Hamm's) at Mission neo-saloon Elixir (3200 16th St. at Guerrero, 552-1633), 3-7 p.m.

  • 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.'"
