The Yard Burger - SCOTLAND YARD

Plus some weird hours for the Lucky Penny, how a no-tipping policy plays out in real life, and how to fill your life with oysters in a crab-less world.

40 Oz. of Freedom at Scotland Yard
Scotland Yard,
which along with Belga and The Dorian constitutes the Marina's new cool-kids trio, has a new Tuesday night special to liven up the most mundane evening of the week. For $40, you get two of Chef Jason Raffin's single-patty Yard Burgers, two sides, and a 40-oz. bottle of Olde English malt liquor. 
Scotland Yard, 3232 Scott, 415-872-6853 or

SFO Terminal 3 Has Food

San Francisco International Airport is getting fancier. The remodeled Terminal 3 has 12 new restaurants and food-related retail spots, according to the Business Times. You got your Peet's, your Burger King, your middling sushi spot, your Union Street Gastropub, and your Max's E.V.O.O. Cafe. There's also a 6,000-square-foot club for heavy United flyers that costs $550 a year. I've never flown anything but coach in my life, so I've never been inside one of those places, but I imagine you see a lot of lot of expensive watches and people drunk during early-morning hours cause they haven't adjusted to the time zone yet.

So Does Lucky Strike
When you "ride the lightning" to get that "turkey" but end up with a "wombat" instead, you can get pretty hungry. The Food Buddha (a.k.a. Chef Rodelio Aglibot) has come to the rescue at all 20 Lucky Strike haute bowling locations with A2 Kitchen. Poutines, street tacos, sushi, flatbreads, burgers, and wings will keep you full during a game of only sport where you can totally eat and drink and play at the same time.
Lucky Strike, 200 King, 415-400-8260 or

Formerly 24/7 Lucky Penny Diner Now Closing at 9:20 p.m. Some Nights
This is a little peculiar. Probably only moments after noting the shitshow that is the Masonic Trader Joe's parking lot situation, SF Citizen caught the Lucky Penny's new hours. Once a 24/7 establishment, it's still open all day Thursdays through Sundays, but only 6 a.m. - 9:20 p.m. on Mondays through Wednesdays. It's not long for this world.
Lucky Penny, 2670 Geary Blvd., 415-921-0836.

The World of No-Tipping Is Here
Danny Meyer (Shake Shack, the Modern, formerly Union Square Cafe) is one of NYC's top restaurateurs who's moved beyond the practice of tipping. The New York Times looks at how the abolition process is playing out. Placating my inner server is the news that the company will match last year's salaries for front-of-house staff at least through February.

Don't Get Sad About Dungeness Crab Season. Eat Oysters!
Pearl, the oyster-finding app we wrote about some months ago, has updates that allow you to track the oysters you ate. This is helpful, because a lot of oysters taste alike, but it can also fill the Dungeness-crab-shaped hole in your heart.

  • 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.'"
