Wes Rowe of Wes Burger fame is teaming up with LookOut in the Castro to launch Soul Delicious, a southern-infused brunch pop-up. The weekly affair will feature a rotating menu set to the soundtrack of Motown classics. Come hungry, and be prepared to dance — just as you'd expect at this second-story bar just off Market. 

The revelry begins this Saturday, June 13, with a barrage of comfort cuisine designed to disarm even the most stubborn of weekend hangovers. The inaugural centerpiece figures to be the modestly-billed 'Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich', an $11 gut-busting combo of ground maple pork belly, aged melted cheddar, and a runny, fried egg. Just to give it some semblance of healthfulnes, it's topped with a bouquet of arugula, and comes with country style home fries on the side.

Chef Rowe's signature dish, however, is his Uncle Brother's Fried Chicken, drowned in jalapeño cream gravy and plated atop a cheese grit cake. For a taste of Texas, he's slinging a trio of Austin-style breakfast tacos, stuffed with bacon, eggs and spicy salsa. Either dish will set you back $12. A bit of grits and grease typically cures whatever's ailing you. But as a last resort, early afternoon barroom dining is always a great excuse to bite the hair of the dog.

Running from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. every Saturday, future Soul Delicious menus will feature fare from Dominique Garcia of Mama. The new addition to the Castro weekend dining scene hopes to deliver some much-needed soul to the city's popular-yet-predictable brunch landscape.

  • 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.'"
