To be able to bluff a spirit-forward cocktail with even a fraction of the skill displayed at Beretta would be an accomplishment. It's not out of the question, since, starting in January, Beretta master barman Ryan Fitzgerald will share tips and techniques via monthly cocktail instructional sessions. Three themed Monday evenings are planned so far, tackling the topics of whiskey, tequila, and gin, respectively. Expect to come away with an understanding of how to work with these ingredients in general, as well as with some of Beretta's specific secrets.

When: Mon., Jan. 24 (whiskey); Mon., Feb. 21 (tequila); Mon., Mar. 21 (gin); all classes 7-9 p.m.

Where: Beretta, 1199 Valencia (at 23rd St.)

  • 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.'"
