Unless you wear chef pants to work or have some connection to media old or new, you won't be able to witness tonight's launch party for Public House/Mijita at AT&T Park. The official public opening for Traci Des Jardins' double-in-the-bubble ballpark eateries is April 9, date of the Giants' home opener. This morning, workers were putting last-minute touches on the space formerly known as Acme Chophouse.

The focal point of Public House: Its mighty keg wall, which by our count holds nearly 80 barrels of suds. Indeed, craft brews are the attraction Des Jardins' version of the sports bar is hoping to get beer lovers to show up even on non-game nights (certified cicerone Eric Cripe served as beer consultant). Public House director of operations John Epperheimer previously told us there'd be 24 beers on tap, with 80 percent of total suds offerings being local.

By the way, if we know anything about media folk, we have a pretty good feeling a lot of that beer will get sucked down tonight.

  • 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.'"
