Where to Celebrate Christmas, Jewish Style

We're not sure exactly how the modern Jewish tradition of eating in Chinese restaurants on Christmas started, aside from a shared interest in keeping kosher. But we do know from experience that nothing defines this particular holiday quite like an order of  good potstickers.

San Tung (1031 Irving at 11th Ave.) is the spot to go when you want to erase the thought of Christmas and eat with the expats. It'll be crowded, noisy, and delicious. For a completely different environment -- think table linens instead of place mats -- Ton Kiang (5821 Geary at 22nd Ave.) in the Richmond is a good choice. Dim sum is served until 10 p.m. here, and special combinations are offered for those who feel like having a mini splurge. Both are open tomorrow for Christmas. You might see us there.

  • 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.'"
