  • The price of delicious.

It's a dish every bit as much a tradition in San Francisco as a Tamale Lady cheese and green chile specimen late nights at Zeitgeist. And if the salt-and-pepper crab at Cantonese institution R&G Lounge also happens to be -- oh -- a tad more expensive than a tamale (last time we looked, it clocked in at $30), who could complain? It's Christmas, after all. Even if you're not feeling the whole babe in a manger thing, consider it the cost of succulence: salty, pepper-numbing crab shell on the outside, sweet, moist hunks of Dungeness on the inside.

Still obsessing about the cost? Consider it the price you pay for escaping Christmas world outside. If only for an hour.

R&G Lounge 631 Kearny (at Sacramento), 982-7877

  • 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.'"
