Food Fight Turns Nasty; Police Called

All things being equal, a food fight at a grocery store is a more pleasant call than a rock fight at the quarry or whatever might be flung back and forth at the wastewater treatment plant. But it was the former that drew police to the Safeway on the 4900 block of Mission on Sunday.

A woman took issue with fellow customers' "snide" commentary regarding her "payment method." Our calls to the San Francisco Police Department haven't been returned -- but, barring an attempt to barter or hand over Confederate dollars, it's possible a check may have been involved.

The aggrieved woman turned her ire -- and groceries -- back on her tormentors.

She hurled invective at the crowd, as well as an egg -- which struck another woman on the leg.

The egged woman signed an arrest form. The egg-tosser was then cited for battery and released.

What became of her remaining groceries is uncertain.

  • 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.'"
