Official opening date for the Public House/Mijita twins in the old Acme Chophouse spot at AT&T Park is April 9, date of the Giants regular season home opener against Atlanta. Does that indicate the project is off track? Not really, said Liz Einbinder, publicist for Traci Des Jardins. "The plan was always to be open by or on opening day," she said. Last Friday, Des Jardins' fancy Jardinière started stoking ballpark fever by offering a preview of the Public House burger, and it sounds strictly from artisanal: Marin Sun Farms grassfed beef, with avocado, bacon, and Grafton cheddar, next to house-made pickles and hand-cut Kennebec fries. The burger's available at the Jardinière bar and J Lounge, from now till, well, maybe always. And if you're thinking that Public House/Mijita is opening its doors for the first time on the day tens of thousands of baseball fans descend on AT&T, you're crazier than Giants' closer Brian Wilson. Check back for word on unofficial soft opening dates.

  • 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.'"
