Wine Elites? 

Wednesday, Oct 29 2008
SF Wine Week takes place in a clutch of glittery bars, a Mercedes-Benz showroom, and the ground floor of The Hayes luxury condos. Organizers are clearly banking on a certain breed of attendee (young, sophisticated, great FICOs) but they’re also reaching across the aisle. A grudgingly reasonable $75 gets you into all six events, and among the large group of participating wineries (none of them PlumpJack!) is Three Thieves, which sells wine in jugs, because, according to the site, “These mavericks believed that it did not take a fancy bottle to make a wine for real wine drinkers.” You betcha! The company also states it makes wine for “everyday folks who needed a great wine to go with a drive-through meal,” and then it mentions NASCAR. We have no clue what it thinks about abortion.

Wine Week starts tonight at 6 at Project One, 251 Rhode Island (at 15th Street).

  • 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.'"
