Punchdown Love

When: Sat., Feb 12, 5-9 p.m.

Where: The Punchdown Wine Bar, 2212 Broadway (at Grand), Oakland, 510-251-0100

Cost: $55 for four wines and four small plates

Why it's likely to be special: Hannah Hoffman's hit a slight snag in plans to roll out her Cibo per Strada food truck, but it's not deterring her from the odd pop-up ― like the Valentine-ready dinner she's doing with D.C. Looney and Lisa Costa of the Punchdown, the Plum-adjacent wine bar in Oakland.

Menu highlights: Natural process Sauvignon Blanc and roast chicken with Moscato sauce, garlic pearls, and black pepper smashed potatoes; Occhipinto "SP68" and pomegranate lamb loin medallions with fregula, peas, and kale; Francois Pinon Chenin Blanc Vouvray and almond tart with mascarpone

  • 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.'"
