What: Old World's Hanukkah Pop-Up Dinner

Where: La Victoria

When: Tue. and Wed., December 20 and 21, seatings at 5:30 and 8:15 p.m.

Cost: $40 adult, $20 kid (kids welcome at 5:30 p.m. seating)

The rundown: Jewish people and lovers of delicious Jewish food unite, for it's an unique pop-up dinner to celebrate Hanukkah! Organizer/Chef Kenny Hockert of Old World Food Truck writes, "Hanukkah is a holiday full of tradition, and foods to symbolize those traditions. Fried foods such as latkes and sufganiyot, Hanukkah doughnuts, are made to commemorate the oil that burned in the old temple for eight days." We can get behind any holiday that celebrates frying.

In addition, they'll serve latkes, house made corned beef with rye bread pudding and braised sauerkraut, and, of course, matzah ball soup. The meal will conclude with menorah lighting, music, dreidels, and more. They emphasize that the event is non-religious and inclusive of all (including vegetarians and vegans, just ask!) so everyone get down on this. As far as booze, it's BYOB (no corkage fee) so guests are encouraged to bring their Manishevitz, He'Brew, or whatever they'd like to celebrate Hanukkah with, they'll provide the glasses. Mazel Tov!

Tickets available online.

  • 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.'"
