Plus Laughing Monk Brewery opens in the Bayview. Off the Grid's Presidio Picnic returns April 3, and did you know that corned beef isn't really Irish?

Laughing Monk Brewery Opens in the Bayview
I guarantee your Lyft driver does not know where Egbert Avenue is, but Hoodline reports that there is a fully functioning brewery there now. Laughing Monk's tasting room opens today, debuting three beers: a pale ale, a coffee stout, and a golden ale with chamomile. Thirteen more are coming, and if you're hungry, there'll be food by Azalina's Malaysian Kitchen, whose commissary is nearby.

Delarosa in the Marina Launches a Late-Night Menu with a Happy Meal
It probably won't be too long before Grimace and the Fry Kids hand-deliver a cease-and-desist, but Delarosa will now serve food at its Marina location until 1 a.m. There's a "Happy Meal" consisting of a glass of pilsener, a shot of Fernet, and some cacio e pepe, and there's also a calzone, a meatball sandwich, and a few cocktails on this menu. (Sundays through Thursdays, 11 p.m. - 1 a.m., at 2175 Chestnut St.)

Off the Grid's Presidio Picnic Starts April 3
There will be yoga. Off the Grid's party at the Main Post Parade Ground returns April 3 with 34 vendors, a green screen photo booth, animal tattoos, designer clothes, and more. Presidio Picnic was pretty huge in seasons past, and this year's draw of Wing Wings, Bacon Bacon, Shorty Goldstein, Slightly Skewed, and others looks to be the same.
Presidio Picnic, Sundays, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., April 3 - Oct. 9.

Looks like someone at SXSW Is Ripping Off Curry Up Now.
If you're going to see Fantastic Negrito or the Avett Brothers in Austin today, swing by and report back, won't you?

Equator Coffee Is the California Small Business of the Year
The first American coffee company to become a socially conscious B-corporation, Small Business Administration has designated San Rafael's Equator Coffees & Teas the 2016 California Small Business of the Year. At 90 employees, the 21-year-old company is thriving, and Helen Russell and Brooke McDonnell's roastery is also the first LGBT-owned and -certified business to be so named. Congratulations!

Corned Beef and Cabbage Aren't Even Really Irish
So say the killjoys at the New York Times, noting that corned beef is as American as chop suey. And this fourth-generation, three-eighths Irish-American can't stand them.

  • 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.'"
