Ike's Place Survives Summary Judgment Hearing; Instant Eviction Threat Off the Table

It looks like Ike's Place has dodged a huge bullet in its ongoing eviction threat. This morning, the hearing for summary judgment went in favor of the Castro sandwich shop, meaning that Ike's worst-case scenario ― eviction within three days ― isn't happening.

"It was the outcome we were hoping for," owner Ike Shehadeh said, giving a nod to supporters who showed up at this morning's hearing. "At this point there's no way we can be evicted without a trial."

What's the next step? Ike's landlord will have to decide whether he wants to take the case to trial, or engage in some kind of settlement. Shehadeh says that, so far, landlord Denman Drobisch has rebuffed the notion of negotiating a settlement, but ― who knows? ― with this morning's news, that might change.

  • 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.'"
