Casa Poleng Lives!

Where: The Summit, 780 Valencia (at 19th St.), 861-5330

When: Sat., Jan. 29; dinner 6-9 p.m., afterparty 9 p.m.-2 a.m.

Cost: $25 for dinner; afterparty free (RSVP required)

The rundown: The closure of Poleng Lounge last year was a bummer for all kinds of reasons, not least of which that the mod-Filipino food movement it'd become a locus of was on the verge of finding voice. Relive the magic this Saturday at The Summit, where Poleng chef Tim Luym will offer a tribute dinner to the dream that died. The Summit, of course, is the Valencia Street café launched post-Poleng by Desi Danganan, who'd originally intended the place to be a spinoff called Casa Poleng. Luym will be given an assist from Summit chef (and Poleng alum) Eddie Lau. Talk endlessly about what could have been at the afterparty following.

Tickets available online, but book fast: Dinner is limited to 50 seats.

  • 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.'"
