November 2010 Openings & Closures: Roast Meats In, Markets Out

Posted By on Tue, Nov 30, 2010 at 3:00 PM

Beast and the Hare opened this month. - BEAST AND THE HARE/FACEBOOK

November brought on a rush of restaurants who pushed to open before the holiday bonanza season. Several were lower-priced spinoffs of tony restaurants, while others were additional locations (or relaunches) of familiar names. On the closure side, the more disturbing note was the shuttering of markets in a time when common wisdom says people are cooking at home more.  (All the items on this list were pulled from SFoodie's daily Buzz Machine column.)

  • 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.'"
