Sweet Days Moves into Former Joe's Ice Cream Spot

When Joe's Ice Cream moved across Geary Street last summer after 51 years in business, the last thing we thought we'd see in the old space is a shop selling ice cream. But that seems to be one of the featured foods at the new Sweet Days, which opened last week and is carrying Swensen's along with a basic menu of deli-style sandwiches. But with both Joe's and the relatively new Na Ya Dessert House (which scoops Mitchell's) across the street, this cafe is probably going to have to shine with the sandwiches or think of something else in order to survive.

Sweet Days: 5351 Geary (at 18th Ave.).

  • 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.'"
