Earlier this year, SFoodie reported that former Little Skillet chef Christian Ciscle would open his own place called Wing Wings, and the grand opening is now set for tomorrow (June 15). Inspired by East Coast chicken shacks and Southern comfort food, the launch of Wing Wings fulfills his original restaurant goal right in the Lower Haight, the same neighborhood where he's lived since moving here in 1996. It's also the area where he opened his now-defunct first food venture, Big Sherm's Sandwiches. The cozy counter-driven takeout place features warm local colors (orange and black) and a dozen stools along both sides of the walls. Ciscle told us that his chicken wings come from free-range, naturally fed California chickens from Pitman Family Farms, which are air-chilled, not frozen, and are PETA-endorsed. Everything is made fresh with quality ingredients and nothing is frozen. The fried chicken wings come in five, 10, and 25-piece portions, with copious sauce options such as classic buffalo, Korean style, honey mustard, BBQ, and an original Wing Wings sauce and extra topping options including bacon, chopped chiles, and chicharrones. Ciscle will also offer fresh biscuits, chicken salad, pickles, fried plantains, and fruit pies. He says he'll open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight (closed Tuesdays), and will close at 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Opening June 15: Wing Wings 422 Haight (at Webster), 834-5001.

  • 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.'"
