We checked out yesterday's grand opening of the Summit well into an ambitious 18-hour day (it's open seven days a week, but from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday). Right away, we found the space full of a lively mix of people making strides toward achieving The Summit's goal of being a fun, comfortable place to hang out and bloom new ideas. It's a creative extension of the mission of neighbor and landlord I/O Ventures, an incubator for fledgling technology companies. Over a comforting bowl of chocolate pork and beans (yep), we imagined this warm and airy space will also be a good place for an interesting yet relaxed first date, where new relationships as well as new companies might start up.

Check out SFoodie editor John Birdsall's two-part interview with chef Eddie Lau for more on the vision of this unique space.

The Summit: 780 Valencia (at 19th St.), 533-0041.

  • 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.'"
