  • Big-ass burritos tend to bring out Spanglish praise.
Haighteration's all over today's arrival of Estrella Taqueria, which opened in the former La Carreta space at Haight and Fillmore ― in fact, the menu seems to be a CC of Carreta's, which suggests continuity of ownership. That protentially troubling fact didn't stop Haighteration's Andrew from busting out his best Spanglish: "They've got a pretty extensive menu, ranging from prawn quesadillas to tofu ranchero burritos ― and they even have a breakfast menu, which we will definitely be trying muy muy pronto." Yelper Devon C. appears to have been the first customer: "It's a burrito place, and I can really only judge a burrito place by the food. It was a big ass burrito, amazing guacamole, and they were super friendly." Super friendly counts for a lot.

Now open:

Estrella Taqueria 533 Haight (at Fillmore)

  • 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.'"
