Lagniappe Dinner

When: Mon., Mar. 7; reservations between 5:30-10 p.m.

Where: Absinthe, 398 Hayes (at Gough), 551-1590

Cost: $35 for three courses; oysters on the half shell, beer, and wine sold separately

The rundown: New Orleans-themed Boxing Room ― the Absinthe sibling due in April ― offers what it calls its "final preview" dinner, draping itself with green and purple beads (well, metaphorically) on Lundi Gras, the eve of Mardi Gras. A portion of the proceeds from Justin Simoneaux's menu benefits S.F.-based Louisiana wetlands nonprofit For The Bayou.

Menu highlights: Deep-fried alligator with Creole remoulade; pan-fried catfish with crawfish etoufee and grits; red beans and rice with house-smoked sausage and cornbread; praline ice cream sundae

Reservations: Call Absinthe at 551-1590

  • 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.'"
