"No, You're Boring": 1058 Hoagie Lashes Out Against This Week's Review

When you write criticism for a living, it's your job to dish out the bad along with the good. I had high hopes for 1058 Hoagie, the new sandwich shop from Adam Mesnick, the owner of the excellent Deli Board, but when I reviewed it this week in the paper I found some of the new hoagies to be lacking the creativity of his original hot sandwiches.

The review and its punny headline, "Deli Bored," caused me to became the subject of schoolyard name-calling on the sandwich shop's daily special board -- as Marcia Gagliardi at Tablehopper discovered and posted on Instagram with the caption, "This is what happens @1058hoagie when they don't like your review's headline: you become a special. Snark=snark."

A little investigative work revealed that it is day two of the "Anna Roth is boring" campaign over at the original Deli Board, where today's specials ran under the header "Anna Roth, still boring."

It's unclear how long the badmouthing will go on before the restaurants go back to naming their specials board things like "teams got heart" and "backyards, tecate, and requests."

  • 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.'"
