Let's do lunch:

The two-hour beer-soaked lunch, a dying art in these days of takeout chicken Caesars. SF Weekly restaurant critic Meredith Brody says a little resuscitation is in order: Head out to the Beach Chalet (1000 Great Highway at Ocean Beach, 386-8439) for steamed mussels with chorizo.

Drink therapy:

Wash off that work-week stink in the plush confines of Ana Mandara's Cham Bar (891 Beach at Polk, 771-6800), and with $3 drafts, $6 specialty and sparkling cocktails, and reduced-price apps from 5-7 p.m., you can afford to linger.

Call it rehab: On Sunday, all you servers, line cooks, and other industry workers can show up at 1550 Hyde Café and Wine Bar (1550 Hyde at Pacific, TK), prove you're in the biz (heel callouses and forearm burns may not be evidence enough) and get 15 percent off your check, 5:30-9:30 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.'"
