S.F. Landlord Paranoid About Chocolate Goodness

SFist has kindly alerted us to a rather unsavory conspiracy theory brewing on Nob Hill. In a guest post at Laughing Squid, author Laszlo Toth reports on a note posted to the door of 1519 Polk Street, a former retail location of See's Candies.

"Your favorite candy store is gone," begins the note, presumably authored by landlord John Jenkel. "This property owner will not do business with people like [See's owner] Warren Buffett who maintain unconstitutional wars for profit."

True, SFoodie is not in Buffett's inner circle, but we did take a private tour of the See's Candies factory in South San Francisco back in June. While it was more difficult to secure a visit there than to the Pentagon, we're confident that there are no secret plots going on there, other than brainstorming new sugar bombs on a serious mission to delight us all.

  • 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.'"
