  • A slice of potato-pesto: No more drunk dialing.
Finding that all-important late-night slice of pizza near the 24th Street BART station has, until recently, been a futile adventure in sad drunk dialing: Twin Peaks, will you heed my call? Too late for delivery. How about Noe Valley Pizza? Another no. There are closer pizza joints, such as Serrano's or Mr. Pizza Man. But when it comes to quality, they're more like Domino's, and that can't be a good thing.

With the recent opening in the Mission of Escape from New York Pizza (3242 22nd Mission, 206-0555), those late-night pizza searches might be a thing of the past. Escape took over the Tortas el Primo spot, and is open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. (unofficially till 2:30), Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Sunday through Wednesday, be sure to get your slice before the clock strikes midnight. Decisions, decisions: the Glorious Chicken and You Say Potato (both $4) are said to be current bestsellers.

  • 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.'"
