Five Local Food T-Shirts We'd Love To See

Posted By on Thu, Sep 2, 2010 at 4:03 PM

Some time ago, we offered up a list of our favorite local food T-shirts. Now, we're taking it one step further with our top five food tees we'd love to see:

1. Humphry Slocombe tees that say "Body by Jake" would be awesome, since HS owner Jake Godby has had a serious hand in the expansion of our waistlines.

2. It long ago jumped the shark, but if The Girl + The Fig revived a famous quote from New York chef David Chang on a T-shirt, it could be hot again: "Fuckin' every restaurant in San Francisco is just serving figs on a plate."

3. Apple wizard Steve Jobs couldn't get a table at Flour + Water recently; we'd like to see the restaurant make shirts emblazoned with "WWJD (What Would Jobs Do)?" on the front and "Make a reservation!" on the back.

4. "Can't ban the sandwich, man!" shirts from the embattled, now-it's-evicted, now-it's-not Ike's Place would be a great way to show support for the cause.

5. It already exists in small button form, but baker Gobba Gobba Hey's slogan, "It's not a whoopie pie, motherfucker, it's a gob" deserves to be visible from at least 50 feet.

  • 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.'"
