Matt Smith of SFoodie's sister blog The Snitch reported today that New Jersey-based Institute of Management and Administration reckoned San Francisco the priciest city in the nation for business travelers to eat in, eclipsing even Manhattan. Here's Smith:

According to the report, a San Francisco breakfast of two eggs with bacon, toast, orange juice and coffee costs more than $18; lunch of a sandwich, slice of pie, and soda cost more than $25; and dinner of steak, soup, wine, pie, and coffee cost more than $76.

As Smith points out, just escaping the ka-ching-ka-ching comforts of the Fairmont and strolling to Sears Fine Food on Powell could shave something like eight bucks off that two-egg breakfast. But the thing that leaves us scratching our heads is all that pie -- a slice for lunch and a slice for dinner. Something tells us that, besides having expense-account management issues, the researcher for the Institute of Management and Administration is a total fatty.

  • 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.'"
