  • Gashead's Burgers at Gashead Tavern

A black-and-white sign with the words "Cocktails. Beers. Food" greets you when you walk past Gashead Tavern. It's a smart combination of words considering that after a long day, that's all anyone really needs.

Above that brief descriptor is the name of the tavern with a gas mask logo. The steampunk theme continues inside, with brick walls, gold lights, dark accents, and a large vintage mirror over the bar.

Drink of the Week: Absinthe Frappe at Gaspar

The tavern serves up British fare and standard bar options with highlights including fish and chips, bangers and mash, and herb-roasted game with truffle-chive butter. For those who want something simple, Gashead's Burgers -- sliders with beef, caramelized onions, lettuce tomato and "gashead sauce" -- might hit the spot when washed down with some beer.

The cocktail list follows predictable lines and includes a Hurricane, a French 75 with agave nectar, and a shandy made with Stoli blueberry and housemade lemonade.

Even on a weekday evening, a few people sat with food and drinks both inside and outside on a small patio. The staff seemed friendly and willing to help. All in all, a cozy bar for either a quick dinner or a rambunctious night.

Oh, and here's a tip: the locale holds special nights throughout the week. For example, Margarita Mondays offers two-for-one margaritas for $8 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. On Wine Wednesdays, the tavern serves up wine one glass for $5 and two for $8. That special goes from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. so good luck having only two glasses.

2351 Mission, 757-0554.

  • 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.'"
