  • This is what you won't be getting -- a menu.
Searching for a mystery thriller for your Halloween dinner? Maverick (3316 17th St. at Mission) is organizing another Mystery Night this Saturday, a dining adventure designed to seriously test your food and wine game. You won't get a menu. Instead, you'll receive a three-course prix-fixe for $40; mystery wine pairings cost an extra $15. You'll get a treat and scorecard, and it'll be up to you to suss out what's on the plate (or in your glass). Points are awarded for partial and full guesses -- if you can nail the potato as a fingerling, for example, you get the full 10 points (but only five for IDing "potato"). Winos will be able to demonstrate varietal knowledge, too. Warning: "The competition becomes friendly but fierce," according to Maverick's Web site. The grand prize for all this? Each table gets a free bottle of vino for the guest who nails the most ingredients or wines. Reserve a table at 863-3061.

  • 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.'"
