Coffee Buzz: Four Barrel on the Way to Western Addition, and Sightglass Logo Controversy

Posted By on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 4:00 PM

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

The Four Barrel coffee slated for Divisadero is making progress, and the beans may be brewing as early as June. Local Addition discovers the pending spot will also serve bakery treats from Josey Baker Bread; all the better -- visitors will be able to enjoy them at the recently approved parklet planned for out front.

That looks familiar: It appears skater-surf brand Volcom may have picked up inspiration for a new design alongside a coffee order. Eater SF reports a shirt from the Southern-California company looks exactly like the Sightglass logo, which was out for some time before the cotton t hit stores. The design company that created Sightglass' logo has now sent a cease and desist letter to Volcom, but, as of yet, hasn't heard back.

Schulzies Bread Pudding won't be serving sweet treats in its new S.F. location quite yet. While they had initially planned on opening before the end of the month, Grub Street notes the debut of their Hayes Valley store was been pushed back, but shares, via Hayswire, that they'll pop-up at Place Pigalle tomorrow from 6-9 p.m.

  • 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.'"
