1 Bourbon, 1 Scotch, and 1 Beer

Where: The Boothby Center for the Beverage Arts, 1161 Mission (at Eighth St.), Ste. 120

When: Sat., Feb. 19, 6:30-9:30 p.m.

Cost: $45

The rundown: As much as we love cocktails, sometimes all we want is the simplicity of a shot and a beer. Boilermaker, headbutt, beer and a bump, call it what you want, it satisfies in a way a cocktail can't, sort of like duct tape for the soul. It's the one drink you can enjoy in any bar, divey or opulent, with equal fulfillment. Showcasing the variety and versatility of this classic combination for SF Beer Week, the Boothby Center is hosting an event that features a carefully curated pairing of 15 beers and 15 whiskies. Yes, we said 15, as in one-five. We're scared, too. You are encouraged to find your own favorite pairing from the beers and spirits being poured, sealing your own signature combo. Eating a large, greasy meal beforehand and taking public transit are unspoken requirements.

  • 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.'"
