Emily Luchetti Hawks Giants-Themed Cookies on Opening Day

No, Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson's cookies -- left to right -- do not exactly resemble their namesakes. Nor were Wilson's cookies produced by "The Machine."
  • No, Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson's cookies -- left to right -- do not exactly resemble their namesakes. Nor were Wilson's cookies produced by "The Machine."

The terms "baseball" and "baked goods" don't normally go together -- unless you're talking about Dock Ellis, the former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher who managed to toss a no-hitter while high on acid.

Well, San Francisco does take on Pittsburgh in Friday's home-opener. Ellis retired more than 30 years ago and an LSD-hawking pop-up might not go over so well, even in San Francisco. So how about a cookie?

Emily Luchetti, the pastry chef for Waterbar and Farallon restaurants, will be pushing $5 bags of Giants-themed cookies at 399 Embarcadero South on Friday starting at 11:30. The goods offered will be Tim Lincecum's "pitchersnaps"; Pablo Sandoval's "Panda Prints" (peanut butter and jam cookies in honor of the Giants' annual crash-dieter); Buster Posey's Chocolate Chunks; and Brian Wilson's Chocolate Sea Salt ShortBEARDs -- because nothing moves cookies like thematically tying them to Rasputin-like, jet-black facial hair.

As you can see, the cookies don't actually resemble the Giants players (and, with Lincecum's long hair and Wilson's Civil War-era beard, these are some fairly distinctive gents; in silhouette they resemble The Young Ones). While we're sure Luchetti's fare is delicious, here are the Giants cookies we wish we could buy:

  • 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.'"
