Clairvoyant Cafe Owner, Casey's Pizza and Bomb Truck Roll Out

Posted By on Wed, Sep 21, 2011 at 5:00 PM


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

A clairvoyant, match-making cafe owner? Maybe sitcom writers have run out ideas. Inside Scoop shares a Craigslist casting call for a local pilot in which a female café owner uses special powers to help singles find true love. Honestly, we think this idea sounds a little stale, but are curious if the set will resemble any real S.F. cafés.

Food truck news: Pizzas and "bombicles" are now roaming S.F. streets. Eater SF shares, via Urban Daddy, Casey's Pizza Truck is parking at Off the Grid starting this week. Meanwhile, via Daily Candy, the Bomb Truck is driving the streets of the Mission selling popsicles of original concoctions, such as limeade cucumber mint and horchata. Just look for the seafoam-green van.

Historic delays: Mozzeria, the napoletana pizza joint set for the former Il Cantuccio spot (3228 16th St. at Guerrero), is facing building preservation hurdles. Grub Street reports the building was recently declared historic by the aptly named Historic Preservation Commission, and with the bequeath of this title comes a headache responsibilities. The commission is fighting for the removal of the modern additions to the building Il Cantuccio installed. No word yet on an opening date.

New eats for Fall: Eater SF shares that the Pearl's Deluxe Burger slated for Market is set to open Oct 1., and the Mission's Charles Phan's Wo Hing General Store plans to start serving Chinese street food by mid-October.

And the Fisherman's Wharf Hooters and In-N-Out just got some tourist-dollar competition. The latest S.F. outpost of Chipotle opens today (333 Jefferson at Leavenworth).

  • 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.'"
