You're at the threshold of another year of eating: Don't squander the moment on indifferent diner scrambles or -- god forbid -- the Starbucks muffin.

Instead, get yourself to Brenda's for a taste of New Year's luck, Southern style: black-eyed peas, collards, and corn bread (a special for the holiday). It'll be crowded for sure (face the fact that you'll send plenty of wait time on the pavement out front), but guess what: You'll be among your homies, fellow foodies with a keen sense of what to eat when.

And do us a favor? Once you are seated, savor every mouthful.

Brenda's French Soul Food 652 Polk (at Eddy), 345-8100

  • 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.'"
