Check, Please! Bay Area, the KQED television show that takes three S.F. Bay Area residents and has them dine at each other's favorite restaurants and then report back on air, is looking for  people to go on TV and talk about food. 

Check, Please! is great television already but we find the guests, by and large, to be a too friendly-and-likable lot. Hmm, maybe that's part of KQED's plan to class-up reality TV? Damn them for being so reputable! Don't they know what we really want is a woman dressed as a cupcake punching a fat man while they simultaneously throw-up? This is America!

So, please apply if you love food more than you love your family, have a restaurant you're obsessed with and must share with the world, are super crazy, are crazy weird, are overly-enthusiastic, are an incorrigible asshole, think you're a professional restaurant critic but really aren't, or are a judgemental wang. 

In fact, our favorite guests on the show are the ones who have their restaurant pick favorably reviewed by all first and then go on to completely destroy the other guests' choices. Cold-blooded! Also, amazing television.

The show is hosted/refereed by Leslie Sbrocco, who looks like the most fun person of all time. Seriously, all we want to do is drink wine and gossip with her whilst getting our hair dyed the same shade of neon-blonde. Love, love, love.

Apply here.

  • 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.'"
