Ready, set, swirl: Two events this weekend are sure to have local winos crushin'.

Crushpad (2573 Third St. at 22nd St.) is hosting an open house on Saturday, June 20, 2-6 p.m. Crushpad's Dogpatch warehouse space has become something of a meeting place to talk about and make all sorts of neighborhood wines. For Saturday's event, barrel tastings and El Tonayense tacos have been promised, along with the chance, in Crushpad's words, to "meet our winemakers." (SFoodie has found them to be a friendly, engaging lot.) Reserve your spot now, online or at 864-4232.

On Sunday, Slow Food San Francisco's Golden Glass event takes over the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion, 2-6 p.m. Drink in the most sustainable and terroir-expressive way possible, eh? Tickets are $20-$60. Winemakers and proprietors will be on hand to talk shop. Of course there will be eats -- the event is slated to be "complemented by culinary delights from the Bay Area's top restaurants and artisan producers," and will benefit Slow Food San Francisco's Slow Food in School programs. Try saying that backwards after your eighth taste.

  • 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.'"
