  • Sheba Piano Lounge

    Sheba Piano Lounge

    Don't let the hokey exterior fool you, this place offers a comfortable, even classy setting in the heart of the Fillmore. Perhaps Meatless Mondays will draw you in, as all Ethiopian restaurants seem to have great vegetarian menus. This one costs... More on Sheba Piano Lounge »

  • Mission Pie

    Mission Pie

    Everybody loves a good slice of pie, and this homey little cooperative not only fills its impeccably buttery crusts adroitly and delectably, it also fills them with organic produce raised at local family-owned farms and employs at-risk urban... More on Mission Pie »

  • Upcider

    Upcider

    First there were upscale wine bars. Now, thanks to Upcider, there's an upscale cider bar as well. This minimally decorated second-floor drinkery has long windows overlooking the crowds on Polk Street, while the menu features rare craft ciders you... More on Upcider »

Bars & Clubs

  • Northstar Cafe

    Northstar Cafe

    From outside, you can hear the click-clack of pool balls colliding. The windows are large and there's a backdoor leading from the pool table to a quiet, tree-lined street. The bar itself is inconspicuous, so the sounds of the break shot or the... More on Northstar Cafe »

  • Monroe

    Monroe

    A new upscale bar in the former Dragon Bar location. More on Monroe »

  • Hemlock Tavern

    Hemlock Tavern

    By showcasing some of the world's best underground indie-rock bands, this microvenue has quickly become one of the city's best. A crowded, clamorous bar up front - decorated with kitschy thrift-shop art, vintage beer paraphernalia, and some... More on Hemlock Tavern »

  • Make-Out Room

    Make-Out Room

    It feels almost like a bingo parlor at the community church. Fortunately, the quirky Midwestern atmosphere of this bar lends itself to the mostly folk and country acts that perform here. Regular DJ nights also expand the soundtrack to include... More on Make-Out Room »

Food Trucks

  • Da Beef

    Da Beef

    Hot dogs and Italian sausages suit both quick, cheap lunches and the kind of sloppy, late-night scarf sessions one rationalizes after hours of drinking on a too-empty stomach. Since this Chicago-style hot dog cart is open until 3 a.m. on weekends... More on Da Beef »

  • Curry Up Now

    Curry Up Now

    This food truck serves up Indian street food and Indo-American hybrids like tikka masala burritos with pickled onions and fenugreek and Indian-Trinidadian garbanzo-filled frybread. Dishes like the "inside-out" samosas can be a mess, but the kathi... More on Curry Up Now »

  • El Gallo Giro Taco Truck

    El Gallo Giro Taco Truck

    This well-loved taco truck with the rooster painted on the side sits outside the gates of Parque Ninos Unidos at Treat and 23rd streets. Its specialty is Michoacan-style roast pork capped with crisped fat. Order it in a taco, and you get... More on El Gallo Giro Taco Truck »

    • In the center of René de Guzman's office at Oakland Museum of California, stacks of exhibition catalogs and trade journals form an improvised table. Crates of records rest nearby, with jackets jutting out at odd angles like the haggard shared collection in a party house living room. The haphazard ephemera and vinyl seem to clash with the title "senior museum curator," but Guzman's lack of preciousness towards his media is telling. He describes the Oakland Museum's upcoming exhibition, "Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records," not as a... More on Oakland Museum of California »

    • If you haven't seen Dillinger Escape Plan live, you remain unaware of the true technical heaviness of which human musicians are capable. When we say this New Jersey mathcore quintet is powerful live, we mean that you will probably spend half the set wanting to physically assault yourself, and the other half wondering, "How the hell are they doing that?" This tour is special because its opening act is Sacramento's own Trash Talk: a band that consistently combines lead-weight riffs with an unhinged attitude. Expect a set that delivers short,...
