    Emperor Norton's Boozeland: Seen and Not Heard

    The bouncer outside Emperor Norton's Boozeland, in the Tenderloin, got mad at me for holding my license in a way that obscured the birth date. Come on. Who are we kidding? I'm not nearly pretty enough to get carded. One…

    Best Mixed Drinks

    Levende Lounge 1710 Mission (at Duboce), 864-5585, www.levendesf.com Many places claim to have created their own mixed-drink recipes, but most of those concoctions taste suspiciously like a mai tai or a Cosmopolitan under a different name. Levende, however, has…

    Best Fries

    Tallula 4230 18th St. (at Collingwood), 437-6722, www.tallulasf.com They call them "pommes frites" here, and they come stacked high in a tall silver cup: fresh-cut fries, crisp without, floury within, dusted with an Indian masala (spice mixture) and topped…

    Best Free Party

    So you're strolling down the colorful part of Market with a restive outlook, no particular itinerary, and scarcely a pfennig in your pocket. It's Saturday night and the primordial urge to interact with your fellow beings is upon you. Luckily,…

    Best Pupu Platter

    Best Pupu Platter The best part of any tiki-accented soiree is those barbecued, coconut-coated nibbles that go so well with your third Mai Tai. Yet many island-themed venues settle for heavy, greasy appetizers that lack that old Polynesian zest and…

    Best Lemon Drop

    The Lemon Drop was invented for people who don't like the taste of alcohol but admire its narcotic potential, and when done well it's worthy of consideration, a sweet, puckery stepping stone from the lemonade of youth to the Calvados…

    Best Place to Spend a Night in the Castro Without Feeling Like You're Spending a Night in the Castro

    The Red Grill & Whiskey Lounge is a great bar, period. With no dance floor, no shrill speaker system, and no cologne-saturated twentysomethings, it's something of phenomenon in the Castro: a comfortable watering hole with a diverse clientele. What it…

    Best Name for a Bar

    For almost a year, we didn't believe a bar could survive with a name like Would You Believe? Driving down Geary, we'd spy the sign and wonder: Is it a freak show-themed bar? One of those on-its-last-leg dives where cobwebs…

    Best Sibin

    Turnover among the city's bars is as inevitable as rain, but still, we have to admit we were deeply saddened when we heard that a divey little Irish bar named Mulligan's bit the dust. The crowd was seedy, the drinks…

    Best Dive Bar

    Worst Martini at a Theater Bar

    As much as we like to take in absurdist shows over a brie quesadilla at the Exit, the sake martini available behind the bar is just about the worst thing we've ever tasted. Unheated sake is not ideal; it's even…

    Best Abondigas

    647-7474 Yes, it is fun to say "best abondigas." But really, these are the best meatballs, as in meatball soup, in town. Their girth is somewhere between that of a golf ball and a baseball, the meat still pink on…

    Best Place to Make the Move

    Human mating is often like a dance, an achingly delicate melding of two souls, each with its own fears and insecurities, hopes and desires, burning lusts, and unbelievably grotesque fetishes. Sometimes, hooking up happens all by itself, and before you…

  • 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.'"
