TyFlo Gets Him Some Momofuku, Joe DiMaggio's Behind in the Count

Posted By on Fri, Oct 29, 2010 at 10:35 AM


The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Tyler Florence must slip bags of unicorn glitter into the pay envelopes. Either that or issue signing bonuses bristling with Food Network stock. Either way, a week after reporting that the Wayfare Tavern mogul secured Jeremy Fox as "creative director" for the Florence Group, Inside Scoop's Paolo L. reveals that TyFlo has signed Momofuku group GM Cory Lane as "corporate service director."

Grub Street's Jay B. passes along a tipster-fueled rumor about the possible imminent demise of Joe DiMaggio's Italian Chophouse in North Beach. We predict massive panic in Danville ― where else will the Escalades valet-park when they come to the city?

And if you're not done savoring the sweet tang of Game 1 in-your-faceness (we haven't even begun to process the pleasure of last night's Game 2), check out a slideshow triple play by Mission Loc@l's Hunter H., Jessica L., and Hadley R., team coverage of fans watching at the Double Play, Gestalt Haus, and outside AT&T. All we can say is, though folks in Dallas might think all of San Francisco is stoned all the time, this is evidence of a city still enthralled with cheap beer. Weed is strictly for medical necessity.

  • 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.'"
