Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen Passover Seder

Where: Coffee Bar, 1890 Bryant (at Mariposa), 551-8100

When: Mon., April 18, 6:30 p.m. (Tuesday seder is sold out)

Cost: $45, $65 with wine pairings

The rundown: If San Francisco can have pop-up ramen, pop-up pizza, and pop-up sushi, why not pop-up Passover? Monday night at Coffee Bar (Tuesday is already sold out), Wise Sons' Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman are putting their own spin on the seder plate. They'll add a radicchio salad with shaved farm egg and vanilla pot de creme with macerated strawberries to the usual Passover fare (matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, brisket). Wise Sons' vaunted Hillel sandwich is on the menu, though built with house-made matzo and a charoset of organic diced apples, dried fruit, cinnamon, and sweet wine. Perhaps we'll see a seder truck for Passover 2012?

  • 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.'"
