Lime-Ginger Chu-Hai, Chotto's Fizzy Juicer

Cow Hollow izakaya Chotto features a take on Kirin Chu-Hi, a canned, shochu-and-juice-based alcoholic soda sold in Japan. The restaurant's version, called Chu-Hai, is available in lime-ginger, orange, grapefruit, and apple flavors, all made with fresh juices and plain or ginger soda. We enjoyed the sweet-tart buzz of the lime-ginger, which didn't exactly invite pacing. Chu-Hai isn't quite Four Loko, but it's still got a noticeable effect if you down one too fast.

Chotto: 3317 Steiner (at Lombard), 441-2223.

  • 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.'"
