Thermidor's Iceberg Daiquiri, a Frosty Flashback

Thermidor's Iceberg ($9) is a mini vacay on a bar stool. Mixologist Brooke Arthur's cooling frozen daiquiri has vanilla and grapefruit elements, but just a hint of the latter, meaning it's pretty much free of the bitterness that can easily overpower a resort drink. That said, the Iceberg has enough grapefruit to give Thermidor's daiquiri an adult edge, unlike the frothy frozen concoctions you recall ― or most likely don't ― from spring breaks in Cabo. The Iceberg's other ingredients include white rum, maraschino, and lime, a blend that conjures its own 80-degree temperatures. Good thing.

Thermidor 8 Mint Plaza (at Jessie), 896-6500.

  • 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.'"
