Wings. Just Wings. And Lots of Them

This week's restaurant review started off as an ambitious project: I was going to cruise around the city in search of its greatest chicken wings, afloat on fryer oil and pitchers of beer. Then two things happened: a) I spent nine days in a row eating barbecue, and realized that to follow it up with nine days of fried chicken would constitute self-abuse; b) after my third or fourth batch of wings, I couldn't stop thinking of the chicken that inspired the whole idiotic quest: the Korean fried chicken at Red Wings in Laurel Heights. Were the wings really that good? I went back to double-check. Yes. Yes, they were.

So, apologies to Kezar Pub and The Pizza Place on Noriega ― someday, I do plan on trying your Buffalo wings. Sorry, SO, I'll get there soon. I now have more incentive now to watch movies at the Bridge Theatre ― the prospect of walking across the street for a post-screening platter of sweet, chile-coated chicken wings and a plastic tub of Korean beer.

  • 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.'"
