It wasn't that long ago that SFoodie was having a laugh by trying to dream up what would be the next form of casual (i.e., unlicensed) food cart to hit the streets, and french fries came up as a possibility. Barely a blip later and our editor John Birdsall had tipped us off to the imminent debut of That Guy's Fries.

On the last TGIF, we braved the wind-whipped maiden voyage of TGF, taking in some baskets of double-fried, skin-on potatoes ($3) with ketchup, honey mustard, and lemon aïoli

for dippin'. They were good -- not transcendent or anything -- but good enough for the moment (and, we suspect, plenty of moments to come).

What it proved most to us is that if we can dream it, the carts will eventually come. What should be next?

  • 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.'"
