  • Achtung, baby: Hasenpfeffer and spiced cabbage.
Mission neo-German würst hall Schmidt's (2400 Folsom at 20th St.) started serving dinner last night, a result of landing its wine and beer license. The expanded menu showed off more of chef Matt Shapiro's range. By 7 p.m. the place was roughly two-thirds full, a mark of just how many followers the place has corralled since opening two months ago.

We seriously hearted the braised, red-wine-marinated hasenpfeffer (leg and saddle of rabbit, $15) with juniper-spiked red cabbage, pan gravy, and shingles of coarse rye. "I told Matt the cabbage is almost as good as my grandmother's," co-owner Christiana Schmidt told SFoodie. "And that's saying a lot."

  • 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.'"
