  • Mission Beach Café
Heeb magazine, our favorite irreverent and Jew-cy periodical, brings its annual Slow Food Seder to Mission Beach Cafe this year. It's certainly a twist on the traditional opening holiday meal (which actually takes place the week before this dinner), but many of the core Seder items will be served, from haroset to lamb bone. Only, they're going to be kind enough to leave the tender lamb shank meat attached, so you can actually enjoy it. Menu and event details after the jump.


First course:

• Matzo ball soup or asparagus and arugula salad with parsley, quail eggs, and Champagne vinaigrette

Second course:

• Smoked black cod with potato kugel and chived crème fraiche or house-made matzo flatbread with haroset, balsamic reduction, basil scallion pesto, and Mezzo Secco cheese

Third course:

• Braised Prather Ranch lamb shank with butter beans, oyster mushrooms, baby carrots, red pearl onions, green garlic and parsley or oven-roasted duck with Israeli couscous, Jerusalem artichokes, pea shoots, and orange sabayon


• Flourless chocolate decadence cake or passion fruit and mango sorbet with anise shortbread

  • 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.'"
