The Seoul Patch Sports Bar and Grill at Dear Mom

Where: Dear Mom, at 16th and Harrison

When: Friday, July 20, 4 p.m to last call (around 1:30 a.m.)

Cost: No cover, $10-$13 entrees, and $2-$4 appetizers

The Rundown: We knew Seoul Patch can do some killer Korean fusion. Turns out Chef Eric Ehler knows a little something about bar food too. We love Seoul Patch for their fried chicken sando, but this Friday, Ehler is throwing down a whole new menu. Originally from the Midwest, Ehler modeled his menu on the bar menus he knows oh so well. "Bar menus are really random with different foods that don't have any business being on the same menu. But they are," he says.

Hence the eclectic lineup of foods like chips and salsa, shrimp scampi, and peach mochi cake that Ehler will serve on Friday. He's still making focused and delicious food, but he also wants to make it fun. This is the kind of the food Ehler wants to eat when he's having a good time.

Catering the event with a "Get Faded. Go Giants" slogan, Ehler wants you to come throw back a few and try something you've never had before -- like a char siu "French dip." Just thinking about this part-Chinese, part-all-American, part-shameless-hipster sandwich makes our mouth water. It will be served with spicy mustard, "caramelized onionzzz," and a Taiwanese beef broth for dunking, as Ehler gallops beyond his habitual Korean-American mash-up grub. Could this sandwich rival the spot his fried chicken has won in our hearts? We'll have to wait and see. 

Ehler's taking no shortcuts with a Korean shrimp scampi (spicy and garlicy as f#*!) and a hamburger we have high hopes for. But don't worry; in case you were about to take this seriously, you can get a side of baloney on Wonderbread for $2.

  • 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.'"
