Drink of the Week: The Verbena Royale at Park Chow

Posted By on Fri, Jun 26, 2009 at 9:00 AM

There are few herbs as fragrant as lemon verbena, and Park Chow (1240 Ninth Ave. at Lincoln) takes full advantage of its bouquet and flavor in the Verbena Royale. A sophisticated blend of Lillet and prosecco is dusted with microbits of the herb, with a garnish of whole leaves that marinate in the mix. On a recent visit, we couldn't stop rubbing and inhaling them. We even insisted that our server take a sniff, to which she let out a genuine "Ooh!" and thanked us for the experience. Even when it's cold outside, you can warm up under the heat lamps of Park Chow's charming rooftop dining area and get a whiff of summertime.

  • 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.'"
