Let's do lunch:

It's worn and tiny, but the handmade dumplings make you feel huge inside. SF Weekly restaurant critic Meredith Brody recommends the Shanghai soup dumplings, scallion pancake, and cucumber salad at Kingdom of Dumplings, 1713 Taraval (at 27th Ave.), 566-6143.

Drink therapy:

It's a lot classier than a Chevys, you don't have to deal with quesadilla-eating 7-year-olds, and happy-hour prices make it strip-mall cheap. Score complimentary botanas and $5 drink specials (including margaritas, mojitos, and well drinks) at Maya, 303 Second St. (at Folsom), 543-2928), 4-7 p.m.

It's sweaty and divey, with a whiff of Parisian garret and an even stronger whiff of pee outside on the Stockton Tunnel steps. Score $6 drink specials at Tunnel Top, 601 Bush (at Stockton), 722-6620), all night. Cash only.

  • 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.'"
