  • Taste 16 different tequilas Saturday at Tres Agaves.
Summer may have skipped us completely this year, but that doesn't mean we can't pretend and warm up with cocktails and spirits from balmier parts of the globe.

Saturday at Tres Agaves, has put together a tasting of 16 different tequilas including El Tesoro, Tequila Ocho, Partida, Fortaleza, Siete Lenguas, and more. If the tastings don't warm you up, then the tequila cocktails, Mexican food, and DJ should temporarily clear the fog from your brain.

Sunday's Ministry of Rum Festival at Miss Pearl's Jam House promises to convert the uninitiated with its gospel of cane spirits.

Over 50 different brands will be on hand to taste, along with cocktails from Smuggler's Cove and Cantina, and cheesemonger Barrie Lynn (surprise source of awesomeness at last year's event), who will be pairing cheese with the rums.

You can hop on the scenic S.F.-Oakland ferry and make the whole day stress-free and a little sunnier. At least from the inside.

  • 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.'"
