Crusta, a Bittersweet Cocktail at Som Bar

The Crusta is a lovely choice when you seek something bitter and sweet that packs a huge punch in a tiny glass, a mix of Bulleit rye, Luxardo maraschino liqueur, Royal Combier, lemon juice, and a dash of Fee Brothers bitters. The rye and the Royal Combier (which contains cognac) anchor this drink in grownup territory, but the maraschino liqueur and the sugar-crusted glass make it feel youthful. We're a bit embarrassed to say that we've been to Som Bar numerous times to check out DJs spinning hip-hop and electro (check out the profile of the DJ/owner/cocktail creator on our sister blog All Shook Down) but never bothered to have a drink before trying the Crusta. We now realize what a mistake that was.

Som Bar 2925 16th St. (at South Van Ness), 558-8521

  • 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.'"
