Let's do lunch:

It's counterintuitive, right? On a summer Friday, you're probably thinking sunny picnic, not frozen steppes. But, says SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody, head to Russian tearoom Katia's (600 Fifth Ave. at Balboa) for the eggplant caviar and mushroom and onion blinchiki.

Drink therapy:

Nah, it's Friday -- everyone and his mom will beat you to the comfy seats under the windows. Still, with $5 wells and other happy hour specials, you could do worse than standing at Wish (1539 Folsom at 11th St.).

On Sunday, penetrate the jungly monkey ambience of Lingba Lounge (1469 18th St. at Connecticut) for karaoke, plus the thing that makes karaoke bearable: cheap drinks. Score
$3 beers
and $5 Jameson
shots, 7-11 p.m.

  • 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.'"
