  • Lafitte now serves both weekend brunch and weekday lunch.
Maybe it's impending summer, or the old-fashioned need to wring more dollars from an existing operation. Whatever it is, some local eateries have recently added new meals to the mix:

• Cool Mission hangout spot The Corner rolled out lunch yesterday ― chef Alex Jackson's menu weaves brunch threads into the vegetarian-friendly bistro menu (pork shank with cheesy hash browns and poached egg, Belgian waffle with maple-braised pork belly and fried eggs, and so on). There's also a three-course lunch prix-fixe ($15) that changes weekly.

• Meanwhile at Lafitte, chef Russell Jackson is breaking the dawn with brunch (pain perdu, fried duck egg with hash, etc.). It kicked off last weekend, followed Monday by weekday lunch service. Today's lunch offers up a "Dagwood sandwich" filled with chicken liver pâté, beef tongue, and salmon, a combo Dagwood himself might've found surprising, if not disturbing.

• Last month, Farmerbrown, too, initiated weekday lunch (11 a.m.-2 p.m.), with a menu stacked with soups, salads, and sandwiches. And in a kind of mirror-image gesture, SOMA sibling Little Skillet, previously open daylight hours only, started staying open evening last week (4:30-9:30 p.m., Tues.-Sat.).

  • 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.'"
