We like the family-style Italian fare at the Bronx-styled Joey & Eddie's (1652 Stockton at Filbert) in North Beach. No surprise, really, since we've loved other restaurants launched by co-owner and executive chef Joseph Manzare, especially Globe.

Anyway, we just learned that Joey & Eddie's is starting special regional Italian menus on Tuesday nights. Tonight's -- the first -- features the cooking of Lazio, home province to Roma, and includes spaghetti carbonara ($10), porchetta (roast suckling pig) with polenta ($20), and crostato de viciole (cherry tart, $8).

Chef de cuisine Marc Tennison is working out the seasonal menus with Manzare's input. Next up August 4 is Tuscany, which will feature ragu bianco con castagne (chestnut pasta with milk-braised pork shoulder, $11), and agnello ai carciofi (roasted leg of lamb with baby artichokes, $19). Following that, look for Emilia Romagna-Bologna (August 11), Liguria-Genoa (August 18), and Campania-Naples (August 25), with menus to be determined.

  • 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.'"
