Kimpton Restaurants is donating money for each "special" cocktail purchased this month. The Cocktails for a Cure fundraiser is to benefit HIV service organizations, and is part of an ongoing, 20-year commitment by the S.F.-based hospitality chain.

It's easy to participate: Saddle up and order any of the four featured cocktails from master mixologist Jacques Bezuidenhout. A buck from each Cocktails for a Cure purchase goes to the cause (see the list of beneficiaries here). Get your drink on locally at Grand Café, Harry Denton's Starlight Room, Scala's, and others. Bezuidenhout's creations range from the Orange Blossom Fizz, a mashup of Belvedere orange, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, pineapple juice, and sparkling wine, to the more classic Grapefruit Spritzer: Ketel One Citroen with Campari, grapefruit juice, and club soda. The promotion ends Dec. 1, World AIDS day.

Prop. 8 haters, take note: Apparently, Utah is not on board. Kimpton's statement on that is terse: "Cocktails for a Cure promotion not available at Bambara in Salt Lake City, UT." What's that all about?

  • 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.'"
