Cat lovers, rejoice: KitTea, San Francisco's cat cafe, has signed a lease in Hayes Valley. Those who want to enjoy a cup of tea while cuddling with 10-12 felines will soon be able to do so at the corner of Gough and Page.

Owner Courtney Hatt has signed a five-year lease at the property, according to neighborhood blog Hoodline, and should be open within three or four months.

The cafe, which is modeled on similar places in Japan, will have two parts: a cordoned off "cat lounge" and a counter where you'll be able to order food and drinks (the cats aren't running wild over the catering portion). Cats will be snuggle- and pet-able, but they'll also be up for adoption. So if you aren't in the market for a fuzzy friend, maybe you will want to steer clear of a room full of them — especially after the cafe gets a beer and wine license.

  • 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.'"
