A highlight of the new summer cocktails at Michael Mina's Clock Bar is a wonderfully deceptive flip called Five O'Clock Somewhere. It's a flip due to the use of a whole raw egg, in this case shaken with a healthy pour of Bulleit rye, sweetened with raspberry gum syrup, and served in a "reclaimed" coffee mug (which the manager told us came from a Salvation Army store). The froth gives it an adult milkshake feel, and the rye presents a heft that might make this an ideal liquid dessert nightcap.

Clock Bar 335 Powell (at Post), 397-9222

  • 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.'"
