Spring Equinox Pop-Up Dinner

Where: Outerlands, 4001 Judah (at 45th Ave.), 661-6140

When: Mon., Mar. 21, 6 and 9 p.m.

Cost: $60, cash only

The rundown: When does spring start around here? Hard to say, when 70° days in February give way to 40° ones in March, and street trees in full-on pink flower are stripped bare by pinging hailstorms. One undeniable measure is the spring equinox, which rolls around on Mar. 21 whatever the weather happens to be. Another vernal threshold: spring menus, like the beautiful one Cooking with Leif's Leif Hedendal has planned for his vegetarian pop-up at Outerlands the night the season turns.

Menu highlights: Dave's levain toasts with Bellwether sheeps'-milk ricotta and black trumpet mushrooms; soup of Knoll green garlic, English peas, stinging nettle, dulse, sencha, and matsutake dashi; Little City Gardens magic mesclun with icicle radishes, blood orange, and argan; rhubarb-fennel galette with honey, lemon thyme, and crème fraiche

RSVP to with seating preference and number of guests

  • 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.'"
