Hockey Beer Run Ends with S.F. Man in Penalty Box

A hockey fan who went on a beer run during the U.S.-Canada Gold Medal game Sunday ended up having a worse evening than hard-luck American goalie Ryan Miller.

According to police, the man, who was a 64-year-old resident of Grafton Avenue, alarmed witnesses by clumsily parking his BMW on the 100 block of Holloway in the Ingleside. He further caught bystanders' eyes by having an open Budweiser can within said automobile, and wandering into a nearby liquor store with the gait of a man who has just been checked into the glass by Jamie Langenbrunner.

Witnesses dialed 911, and police showed up in time to apprehend the driver, who had purchased an additional six-pack. With a .28 blood alcohol content -- not quite four times the legal limit -- he'll definitely be facing a major penalty.

On top of it all, he missed a scintillating game.

  • 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.'"
