Let's do lunch:

Watch today's televised Giants game against Houston with something altogether more delicious in your hand than the clicker. SF Weekly critic Meredith Brody suggests the house-cured pastrami on New York rye with artisan Gruyere, pickled vegetables, and fries at Acme Chophouse (24 Willie Mays Plaza, King and Third St.).

Drink therapy:

Looks like somebody's been surfing Wikipedia: Pres a Vi (One Letterman, Building D, Suite 150) is calling its happy hour "bakcheia," some Greek concept of self-liberation through the ecstasy of wine.

  • 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.'"
