Four Barrel Spins Off a Satellite, Rec and Park Tries Again

Posted By on Mon, Oct 25, 2010 at 11:00 AM


​The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

After Saturday's S.F. pennant clincher the city went into restaurant-news paralysis. This morning, though, Inside Scoop's Paolo L. jolts to life with news that Four Barrel is launching a satellite in boutiquey The Common (1077 Mission). Of course, you can't swing a sentence about a microroastery these days without referencing the Blue Bottle burn, and Paolo obliges with a jab that lands with the force of a double espresso. Zing!

Showing more restraint, Eater's Carolyn A. notices that Rec and Park has released a call for food-vendor proposals for the Lake Merced Boathouse without once mentioning Dolores Park. Now, Lake Merced is about as far from the Mission as you can get, geographically and stylewise, but still: commercialization of city parkland is commercialization of city parkland. Blue Bottle opponents? Your move, bros.

  • 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.'"
