Let's do lunch:

It's as quintessentially San Francisco as freezing your ass off at AT&T: SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody says grab a bolt-down stool at the counter and revel in the oysters and Crab Louis at Swan Oyster Depot (1517 Polk at California, 673-1101).

Drink therapy:

Celtic tapas? No, that's not a euphemism for boiled spuds. Dip into the melting pot, Mission style, via Irish potato nachos, and wash 'em down with buck-off happy-hour pints and well drinks at Phoenix Irish Bar (811 Valencia at 19th St., 695-1811), 4-7 p.m.

It's a lot classier than a Chevys, you don't have to deal with quesadilla-eating seven-year-olds, and happy-hour prices make it strip-mall cheap. Score complimentary botanas and $5 drink specials (including margaritas, mojitos, and well drinks) at Maya (303 Second St. at Folsom, 543-2928), 4-7 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.'"
