Eater SF is on the Case!

Posted By on Wed, Sep 17, 2008 at 2:30 PM


We love reading Eater SF for its sleuth-like vigilance in reporting even just the barest hint of a restaurant that's thinking of opening in the Bay Area. But the site has taken its investigative skill to an impressive level this week in exposing at least two con artists that have tried to prey on local fine restaurants.

Yesterday, editor Paolo Lucchesi described a Vegas hustler trying to extort money from restaurants such as Aqua and Fifth Floor with a yarn about a greasy Gucci blouse. And just moments ago, he uncovered yet another scam, this one concerning stolen credit cards and group dining reservations. We feel safer already with such a good Neighborhood Watch on duty. —Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
