Frozen Mango Sake, A Tacky But Tasty Tipple at Bushi-Tei Bistro

For the first time in the history of this column, our favorite drink this week was a slushy tipple we sneaked in during a hump-day lunch at Bushi-Tei Bistro. The bartender blends icy Sho Chiku Bai -- a cheap and cheerful sake made in Berkeley -- with a choice of frozen raspberries or mangoes. We chose the latter because raspberry reminds us of frat parties. Granted, our standards may not be that high, but the appeal of the drink was clinched by a fabulously cheesy flower straw.

Total win.

Bushi-Tei Bistro 1581 Webster (at Geary), 409-5959.

  • 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.'"
