Tucked between celebration-heavy Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, Father's Day ― a frail holiday to begin with ― can get a little lost in the shuffle. It's a shame, really. Where would we be without Pops, he who once delivered an 8 a.m. kitchen table lecture on avoiding gonorrhea, helped shape our early and ungainly prose stylings, and taught us how to score, at least theoretically, with our back to the basket? Nowhere, that's where.

If you're looking for a good place to toast your father, Presido Social Club's June 20 pig roast (the first of the summer) will do the trick. Chef Ray Tang's Caja China-cooked organic swine will follow happy-hour pupu platters, and tropical cocktails crafted by renowned mixologist Tim Stookey. The Caja China, by the way, is a Bobby Flay-approved wooden box chef Tang likes to use for roasting. Event details after the jump.

Sunday Pig Roast Happy Hour

When: Sunday, June 20, 3-5 p.m. (successive Sunday Pig Roasts will be 4-6 p.m.)

  • 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.'"
