In what is likely the first instance of a cocktail being named after an SF Weekly cover story headline -- by the subject of the article, no less -- Chris Daly is serving up the "Captain Outrageous" at the Buck Tavern.

It's a drink that's got a little sting in its tail; quaff a few and, suddenly, the central waterfront America's Cup plan Daly blew up doesn't seem quite so objectionable. One patron at Daly's establishment compared its taste to "orange smarties." Here's how you make one:

Take 1.5 ounces of Captain Morgan (natch) spiced Rum. Mix with half an ounce of triple sec, and half a lemon squeezed. It's shaken -- not stirred -- and given a Baccardi 151 floater. Served up with a twist.

While the central waterfront plan would have potentially cost the city $101 million, the Captain Outrageous will only set you back $7, and $6 if it's on special. And, Daly promises, "first one's my treat if you're wearing a captian's hat!"

No hat? You'll pay full price, Admiral Nelson!

  • 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.'"
