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

When: Mon., Feb. 14, 7 p.m.

Cost: $100 (includes tax and service); a portion of the proceeds is slated for The Food Pantry

The rundown: We're a city that likes the notion rule-breaking, going off the grid, scratching out little charmed circles of realness. Beer and food pairings get the oh-no-they-din't treatment Monday at The Summit, where in an event keyed to SF Beer Week, house chef Eddie Lau teams up with Beer and Nosh blogger Jesse Friedman from Almanac Beer Co. in a carbonated display of rule-breaking: beers from a variety of brewers that diverge from standard styles, matched up with food that aims to surprise. In case you're keeping track, this will be Almanac's first beer dinner, and brewers from other featured beers will be on hand to discuss.

Menu highlights: Scallop, ale-carbonated citrus, and turnip with Alamanac's Summer 2010 Blackberry Ale; vadouvan short rib with wild mushrooms and French lentils with SF Beer Week Collaborative Bourbon Barrel Common; foie torchon with duck-egg sabayon with Firehouse Brerwing Retribution Double IPA

Tickets available at Beer and Nosh

  • 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.'"
