KTVU is reporting that the same pair of gunmen who pulled off a restaurant-invasion robbery of Potrero Hill's Chez Maman last night -- setting off a firestorm of Tweeting -- may also have robbed a 7-11 on Ocean Avenue before leading police on a careening chase through San Francisco. The suspects' car crashed into a pole at Randall and San Jose; one was arrested on the spot while another fled and is at large. 

The restaurant invasion story was purportedly first tweeted by this user, and then backed up by other Twitter-enhanced passers-by -- who had the wherewithal to actually ask questions of restaurant staff and patrons.

SF Weekly's call, to the San Francisco Police Department was answered by spokeswoman Lieutenant Lyn Tomioka, who did not have any additional details at this time.

  • 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.'"
