The place: Fuzio, 1 Embarcadero Center (at Clay), 392-7995

The hours: Mon.-Fri., 3-7 p.m.

The deals: $3 appetizers, $5 mini pizzas, $3 drafts, $5 well drinks

The digs: Bright, chirpy TGI Friday's kind of place atop Embarcadero Center, with friendly barkeeps, big windows looking out on the Ferry Building, and a burbling crowd of post-work, pre-movie revelers.

The verdict: It may not be trendy enough for the perpetually bored S.F. hipster, but despite its cheerfully plasticine ambience Fuzio is a fun place to unwind from the workday. The location is convenient to SOMA, the Financial District, and the streetcars and ferries, the Embarcadero views are pleasant, and the happy hour noshes are substantial and affordable: calamari, crab cakes, spring rolls, firecracker pork sliders with Asian slaw and habanero mayo, and spicy, juicy pulled-chicken lettuce wraps with carrot-ginger slaw. Mini pizzas are $5 apiece, and if you're thirsty, well drinks are $5 and draft beers only $3. The Embarcadero Center Cinema's just across the way if you want to make an evening of it.

Overall grade: B+

  • 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.'"
