Ever tried waiting nearly two hours on a Friday night for some delectable gastropub fare? Tomorrow's six-course beer dinner might be the only way you'll ever be able to get a reservation at Monk's Kettle (3141 16th St. at Albion). And believe us, snagging a rezzy at this famously no-reservatons place is definitely reason to celebrate.

Tomorrow night, the artisan beer-centric restaurant is hosting a six-course beer dinner focusing on Shelton Brothers, a Massachusetts beer importer. Shelton carries beers that are unsweetened, bottle conditioned (i.e., unfiltered), unpasteurized, and made by hand. Of course, the fermentation is slow, and traditional methods are used. Beer from the Netherlands, the U.S., Norway, Denmark, and Belgium will be paired with food from chef Kevin Kroger. The menu includes house-cured gravlax, lamb tartare with chive oil, lamb stew with fennel, and a traditional dessert of chocolate balls. Tickets are $100 and advance purchase is recommended. Call 865-9523.

  • 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.'"
