It's Thursday, which, as I understand, is the day most members of the fourth estate will find themselves after work boozing at Chris Daly's new bar, Buck Tavern. That's reason enough for SF Weekly to zero in on this bar, naming it Best Politically Connected Watering Hole.

Here's our take on how well the former city supervisor is doing at serving his constituents:

There was a healthy amount of debate over whether Chris Daly the

politician adequately served the people. But there's no argument

whatsoever that Daly the publican is doing just that. The tempestuous

former supervisor's tavern is certainly the best place in this city to

bump into your former, current, and future supervisors over a beer, or

challenge an elected official, legislative aide, City Hall politico, or

various members of the fourth estate to a game of semi-inebriated darts.

While the Buck Tavern's most glowing attribute used to be its proximity

to other, better bars, Daly has got a good thing going. If nothing

else, he has found a fairly steady, upbeat clientele to drink and watch

reruns of government meetings with.

  • 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.'"
