In Vino Veritas 

Wednesday, Nov 7 2007
Here's a mystery: How can a good restaurant offer a really luxurious wine tasting and dinner for a reasonable price? We don't have the answer, or we'd be running the restaurant, but at a local Sommelier Supper, wine director Mickey Clevenger opens his cellar and does just that. While listening to Clevenger talk about the delicate process of choosing grape juice from among the region's embarrassment of riches and pairing the selections with chef Robbie Lewis' fare, "guests will taste approximately two dozen wines," the restaurant's Web site says. Unless they're serving the stuff in dropper bottles, the ensuing family-style dinner ought to be an awful lot of fun. We kid, sort of — it would be fun anyway.

  • 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.'"
