Even Steve Jobs Can't Get a Table at Flour + Water

Posted By on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 12:16 PM

We all know how hard it can be to land a table at Flour + Water if you don't have a rezzie, especially on a Saturday night. Now even Steve Jobs knows it.

Having more money than God didn't help Jobs last Saturday night, when he and a companion tried to get a table. Flour + Water publicist Liam Passmore says Jobs lined up with other table hopefuls before the restaurant opened Saturday. Turns out the people immediately in front of Jobs got the last seats. So what did the man in black do? He left. (See our photo evidence of Jobs' departure ― sorry Photoshop conspiracy theorists: it's real.)

Passmore says Flour + Water has a message for Mr. Jobs: Come back! He said that this time, the restaurant will seriously hook him up with a table, a way of making good on a night that turned as janky for Jobs as the reception on an iPhone 4.

  • 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.'"
