Looks like Ike's Place might be trailing lines along 16th Street in the Castro after all, according to Eater guest editor Laura Beck. After an eviction struggle sticker than a steering wheel smudged with Dirty Sauce, owner Ike Shehadeh has applied for a permit for 3489 16th Street (at Sanchez), the old Joseph Schmidt storefront, half a block from the original Ike's Place. The space was last home to Saratoga Chocolates. From Eater:

[Ike's] got a date with the San Francisco Planning Department on December 16th and whether or not he moves into the space will be based on a decision from the city. If approved, he'd move in by January 2nd, 2011.

Two things: First, the old Schmidt shop isn't exactly sprawling. Why can't Ike just pony up for adequate square footage? And we assume that, like's the last Ike's Place, 3489 16th Street isn't rocking an exhaust hood. Just sayin', Planning Department.

  • 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.'"
