Wonderful Internet find of the day: This website for the "fine dining for kids" restaurant, Lil'Buco. The restaurant is fake, but the dining pretensions it skewers are all too real, from the menu items ("mac and cheese cake with flavor packet coulis," "Hot dog, ketchup reduction, mustard water," and "Lunchables charcuterie") to the drinks, which include "milk three ways" and "mixed sodas (pick three)."

Lil'Buco is open from 4 p.m. to curfew, and offers "curbside parent pick-up/drop-off" as well as " a full non-alcoholic bar, table service, and ball pit seating." Its chefs come from such illustrious backgrounds as Chuck E. Cheese and Dave & Buster's.

It's too bad that Lil'Buco is based in Austin -- we think it would fit right into the same strip that already houses Distilled Moustache and Reclaimed Wood & Subway Tiles.

  • 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.'"
