Tonight at Millennium (580 Geary at Jones), the city's outpost of innovative meatlessness, chef Eric Tucker is getting all hot and bothered with heirloom chile and beer pairings. For tonight's annual five-course meal, Tucker promises to "delve into the dark arts and conjure up culinary creations inspired by El Diablo," using ingredients from Tierra Vegetables. Tucker uses traditional stoves for these dishes, as well as ovens, a dehydrator, and smoker.

We should tell you there's a heavy-duty geek factor at play: Recommended attire includes Darth Vader, D&D, and old Heavy Metal t-shirts. Those who bare their geeky souls will get a prize (or punishment, depending on your POV): I Want My Mommy hot sauce, perhaps, or a side of No One Expects the Spanish Inquisition pepper plate.

Dinner is 5:30-9 p.m., and costs $60 ($78 with beer pairings) -- reserve at OpenTable, or call 345-3900. Oh, and hey, it's definitely BYOT: Bring Your Own TUMS.

  • 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.'"
