Let's do lunch:

Grossed out by the hot dog-sloppy torta Cubana Anthony Bourdain mashed into his face last week on No Reservations? Go classic, says SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody, with a hot pressed Cubano (pork, ham, Swiss cheese, mustard, and mayo) and fried sweet plaintains at Paladar Café Cubano, 329 Kearny (at Pine), 398-4899.

Drink therapy:

So you're even forgoing car camping at Clear Lake in this suckiest of economies. Console yourself with happy hour drink specials (3-7 p.m.) at log-cabin-rustic Bigfoot Lodge, 1750 Polk (at Clay), 440-2355. The upside? Unlike camping, your fellow merrymakers at the Bigfoot will have showered that morning. Probably.

Synchronicity, or something altogether freakier? The Giants game against the Mets hits the HD flatscreen at 4:10 p.m., almost the exact minute Martini Hour drops at MoMo's, 760 Second St. (at King), 227-8660. Score $4 specialty martini, drafts, wines, and shots till 7 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.'"
