At the Dogpatch sandwich shop he named for his mother-in-law, Oralia Posada, Gilbert Cab shuns cold cuts in favor of meats baked every morning, kept warm, and sliced thickly to order, old-school hofbrau style. Turkey breast slices have the weedy taste of the sage-heavy poultry seasoning they've been seasoned with, stacked up with standard sandwich fittings (pickles, tomatoes, brick cheese), yielding results strikingly different from the standard lunch-shop specimen.

Oralia's Café 2347 Third St. (at 20th St.), 621-2346

  • 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.'"
