  • Yo, broke Mission bastards: Tight jeans are optional.
There's something irresistible about the idea of the late-night industry happy hour, with its promise of line cooks, the sweat of the sauté station dried onto them, getting liquored up on Fernet.

Starting tomorrow, you might be able to catch a whiff of that magic at The Corner, where chef-owner Alex Jackson is inaugurating a nighttime happy hour. "While definitely geared for the restaurant industry crowd, I suspect it will appeal to any Missionite that wants to eat something other than a super burrito at 1:30 a.m.," Jackson writes by e-mail. The eats menu sprawls from roasted cauliflower with fregola, black-eyed peas and good balsamic (Jackson's phrase) to beef cheek poutine with farmhouse cheddar. All dishes weigh in at $6.50.

Drinks: half a dozen drafts ($3.50), and even more bottles ($2.50). The category "Broke Mission Bastard List (Tight Jeans Not Required)" lists ― what else? ― $2 High Lifes and 24-ounce PBRs. Jackson says that for the first month, 21st Amendment's draft Back in Black IPA will cost $1. Which, if the promise of poutine isn't, should be an impossible-to-pass-up lure for the Tartine cold-station guy. Maybe the nightly DJs, too.

Launching July 8:

The Corner's Happiest Hours 2199 Mission (at 18th St.), 875-9258. Mon.-Thurs., 10 p.m.-2 a.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11 p.m.- 2 a.m.; Sun., 5 p.m.-1:30 a.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.'"
