Roland's Closure Creates Carb Deficiency in Lower Haight

  • As of this morning, the corner of Haight and Webster has a little less bagel love.
Carb intake in the Lower Haight is likely taking its biggest dip since June of last year, when Roland's Bakery first shined its ray of East Coast bagel light on the neighborhood. As Eater noted earlier today, the bakery has (temporarily?) shuttered, due to a reported landlord dispute and unpaid rent.

This all comes as quite a shock: Roland's has garnered quite a loyal following for its baked goods, including chewy New York-style bagels ― probably the closest San Francisco's going to get to Big Apple favorites like Ess-A-Bagel and Oasis. Check back for rumblings of a Lower Haight reopening, and the status of Roland's second outpost, rumored to surface in Hayes Valley in April.

  • 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.'"
