The day-old second location of Traci Des Jardins' upmarket taqueria differs in key ways from the Ferry Building original. Prices, for one thing (carnitas and carne asada tacos are $3 at the ballpark, a buck less than their Embarcadero cousins, though other items cost a bit more). And just as you might expect, Mijita ballpark does nachos, and jalapeño poppers. But the biggest difference here? Tacos al pastor ($3), achiote-marinated pork shaved off the pineapple-topped vertical rotisserie, heaped on a bumpy, maize-yellow house-made tortilla, with a squirt of tomatillo-arbol chile salsa. It's salty, chewy, and quite tasty, though ― fair warning ― you'll need three, maybe four, to feel like you've lunched.

  • 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.'"
