S.F. Restaurant Mad Libs: Hours of Hilarious Fun

Posted By on Fri, Nov 30, 2012 at 11:00 AM

We were browsing Twitter this morning over a cup of coffee, and this funny tweet from Wing Wings caught our eye. What a great idea: Make-your-own San Francisco restaurant Mad Libs! They're missing a key local word, however: pickled. (Tartare could be on there too -- in the past few weeks we've seen it applied to beef, lamb, and trout -- as well as the up-and-coming sprouted.) What other nouns, adjectives and verbs are you tired of seeing on local restaurant menus? Let's make the #SanFranciscoRestaurantMadlibs hashtag happen.

It's not the first time the famous road trip game has been applied to the restaurant world, either -- a couple years back, those jokesters at Eater made then-NYT restaurant critic Sam Sifton Mad Libs ("Fill in the blanks to write your own one star New York Times restaurant review!"). And in 2007, SF Weekly's own Katy St. Clair wrote a Bouncer column entirely in Mad Libs, which sounds like a fun thing to revisit as you snuggle up in your sweatpants this afternoon ... perhaps with an order of Wing Wings' Angry Korean wings and a brown sugar biscuit?

  • 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.'"
