We often go sweet and girlie when it's time to have a drink, but at Lafitte this week we went for something decidedly more masculine. The Mohawk (rye whiskey, tobacco syrup, Punt e Mes, and lemon peel garnish) packs bold flavors with no flounce. Chef Russell Jackson's characteristic mohawk is currently shaved off, but the cocktail abides.

Lafitte: Pier 5, at the Embarcadero, 839-2134.

  • 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.'"
