This is a great way to get some culture in ya. Kombucha Botanica, based in Santa Cruz, adds ginger and tulsi (the Southeast Asian herb colloquially known as "holy basil") to the tastiest of its kombucha beverages for something alternately smooth and spicy.

The fermentation, thankfully and for once, is not the top note of this drink. Drinking a zoological mat is not usually so easy, but the S.C.O.B.Y. (the symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast that gives kombucha its purported health properties) is still pretty slimy.

  • 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.'"
