In the spectrum of pool hall possibilities, Family Billiards is neither a luxury emporium nor a low-down hangout, but it duly provides 18 well-maintained tables in an environment that favors base functionality over fanciness or style. The warehouse-like space gives you what you need (e.g., clean playing surfaces, crisp lighting, cold beer) and, well, that's about it. But the prices are certainly right: the 4-7 p.m. daily happy hour offers all drafts (including Guinness and Stella Artois) for a mere $2.50, and ladies play free with paying partner on Sunday afternoons. For nocturnal gaming, Family stays open until 2 a.m. every night - and all the way until 4 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays - if you think you can handle the crowds of kids kickin' it to Top 40 jams on the digital jukebox.

  • 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.'"
