Nombe's Japanese New Year's Eve Party

Where: Nombe, 2491 Mission (at 21st St.), 681-7150

Cost: $55

Why it's likely to be special: Nombe's second annual Japanese-style sake-soaked New Year's bash is also the swan song for original chef Nick Balla, who's moving on. How do you say "auld lang syne" in Japanese?

Menu highlights: takoyaki (grilled octopus); toshikosi soba; ozouni (chicken mochi soup, a New Year's tradition); a "buffet of Nombe favorites"; and enough sake to make you regret it in the morning

Reserve: Seatings from 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.; reservations via OpenTable

  • 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.'"
