Far be it for us to give alleged thieves advice on their alleged thievery. But a police report out of Ingleside did give us pause.

According to the cops, a man was recently caught in the act on the 3300 block of Mission. The man's alleged crime: Filching "numerous instant coffee products."

Again, far be it for us to reference the agonizing "gourmet shit" coffee scene in Pulp Fiction. But, if you're going to go to the trouble of breaking the law, why not try to filch some gourmet shit?   

The alleged instant coffee thief was arrested, cited, and released.

His case is now percolating through the San Francisco criminal justice system.

  • 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.'"
