Everybody's Irish on St. Patrick's Day, right? Especially if you were able to find that forest-green American Apparel hoody this morning behind all those jeans belt-looped to the wall hooks. Even food-truck vendors skew Irish on Mar. 17, no matter what cuisine they take their cue from. Case in point: Tonight's Off the Grid Upper Haight, where the nine vendors slated to sell are each offering a special St. Patty's day dish. SFoodie wasn't able to nail down every vendor, but here are the five we've been able to glean:

Chairman Bao: Guinness-braised pork shoulder on panang-dyed green buns

Hapa SF: Dark chocolate Guinness brownies with Baileys glaze

Senor Sisig: House-made Guinness ice cream (guessing here, based on twitpics and wink-wink tweets)

Little Green Cyclo: Green-tea dipping sauce for the fries and tater tots

CupKates: Guinness cupcakes

See a common thread here? Widgets everywhere heave a sigh of relief on Mar. 18. Oh, and on a serious note, OtG Upper Haight vendor Onigilly is donating 10 percent of tonight's sales to Japan quake relief.

Off the Grid Upper Haight: Stanyan and Waller Streets, 4:30-8:30 p.m.

  • 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.'"
