Namu's Solution for Ferry Plaza Lines: The Office Preorder

Miserable-looking Midwesterners in Tommy Bahama aren't the only constant at Ferry Plaza these days. At the Thursday street-food market, lines stretch way past the point of lunch-hour patience. "It's a really tight window that people are trying to fit into," says Namu's Dennis Lee. "A lot of people just end up jumping in whatever line is shortest."

Lee has a solution for the time-harried: The office express. Namu launched a preorder service for office customers today. For a minimum of $75, you can preorder any of Namu's regular offerings, plus a couple of advance-only exclusives, a weekly changing bento box and special sandwich. Plus if you do the advance group order thing three weeks in a row, you get $50 off your next one. Namu put out order sheets today, and has been reaching out to offices Downtown. If all goes as Lee hopes, the lines on future Thursdays? A sea of tropical-prints and fanny packs.

  • 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.'"
