Every day I think we've reached Peak $4 Toast Think Piece and every day the Internet proves me wrong. Edible SF's latest cover story is just the latest in a long, illustrious line of journalistic meditations on the trend. There's Pacific Standard's much-shared article tracing toast's origins to Trouble Coffee; CHOW's response to Pacific Standard; our November feature on artisanal flour; Venture Beat's story on how $4 toast is ruining S.F.; SFist's response to Venture Beat ... the list goes on. (Full disclosure: I wrote my first-ever article for SF Weekly, back in July 2012, about $4 toast.)
But don't fret, would-be authors of viral blog posts -- there are plenty more angles to cover. We've generated some story ideas to help you get a piece of the pageview action.
