In weather like this, you need to eat like a Bavarian plowboy. Pick your way gingerly around patches of black ice to get to Monk's Kettle, perch at the bar, and order the elbow macaroni with cheddar-ale sauce and toasted breadcrumbs, served up in a mini cast-iron skillet.

And because keeping warm today will be a matter of life and death, it's practically an obligation to suck down a St. Bernardus Christmas Ale from Belgium. Sure, it contains 10 percent alcohol by volume, but what the hell: As long as you're letting the nice Muni driver take you back to the office, its not like you have anything important to do this afternoon. Nothing as important as disking a field, anyway.

Monk's Kettle 3141 16th St. (at Albion), 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.'"
