Tillamook Happy Hour

Where: The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, 1 South Park (at Second St.), 243-0107

When: Wed., Aug. 22, 5-8 p.m.

Cost: Menu items from $3-19

The rundown: There's a line out the door every day here for sandwiches, but the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen is normally closed at night. This special evening event in partnership with Tillamook features pitchers of sangria and local craft beer, wine by the glass, and, naturally, grilled cheese sandwiches with sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack, and optional toppings such as smoked turkey, housemade pickles, cured ham, and applewood-smoked bacon. Sandwiches are half-price -- $3 instead of the usual $6 --and Tillamook is known for its good cheesy swag, like squeezable stress blocks shaped like cheddar and buttons aplenty, so prepare for some additional flair.

If you're in the vicinity this afternoon (Aug. 21), the eatery is offering free slices of a mammoth grilled cheese "cake" to celebrate winning a small business grant.

  • 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.'"
