Old and new faces will be making appearances in the Lower Haight this week.

Virgil's Sea Room's Gillian Fitzgerald makes a return to the area tonight since her time tending the bar at Nickies, and she's bringing fish and chips with her. Popping up at Wing Wings, "Batter by the Bay," as the Irish lass has named the night, will offer "traditional (ish)" Irish and British fish and chips.

Alaskan cod battered with Speakeasy's Big Daddy and several house-made sauces including tartar (of course), curry, and garlic, are expected to be the highlights, Hoodline reported.

Also in the neighborhood temporarily taking over Greenburger's now-vacant spot will be pop-up Cool Beans, serving New American comfort food, according to Hoodline. Created by the collaboration of chef Tim West (past gigs include Facebook Headquarters and the St. Regis Hotel in New York) and Derek Proudian, the restaurant is scheduled to be open for the duration of June, starting Saturday.

  • 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.'"
