Starbelly Patio Picnic Series

Where: Starbelly, 3583 16th St. (at Market), 252-7500

When: Tue., Mar. 29-Tue., Sep. 20; 5-8 p.m.

Cost: $39 per person, wine and beer beverage specials available separately.

The rundown: With the weather finally acknowledging the start of spring, a good way to celebrate is at Starbelly's new season of patio picnics, which begin tomorrow night. Chef Adam Timney kicks things off with a whole roast pig, house-made sausage and fregola pasta, broccoli di ciccio, butter lettuce salad, and chocolate-hazelnut filled bomboloni (Italian doughnuts). Timney has been honing his charcuterie skills since his days at Bacar, so keep an eye out for the cured meats, patés, and sausages, all made on-site. The picnics are served family-style on the back patio, which has a retractable cover and heaters -- the restaurant equivalent of dressing in layers.

Reservations strongly recommended; call 252-7500

Picnic themes and dates:

Mar. 29: whole roasted pig

April 26: fried chicken

May 24: grilled Santa Maria tri-tip

June 28: smoked baby back pork ribs

  • 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.'"
