Bernal Heights Lady Loses Her Shit Over Missing Chair

That chair really tied the room together, did it not?
  • That chair really tied the room together, did it not?
In the wee hours of the morning on Monday, some lady in Bernal Heights called the cops. This couldn't wait -- a wicker chair was missing from her back porch on the 100 block of Appleton Ave., and she thought she knew whodunnit!

Apparently, her neighbor was brazenly displaying the purloined chair in front of his own abode.

When a pair of officers from the Ingleside police station arrived at the scene, they found the lady's story checked out. A wicker chair sat, just as she had described, in front of a nearby apartment.

But when the cops entered that apartment and confronted the accused chair-stealer, things suddenly got complicated.

No way he stole that chair, the guy said. It was his all along, and he

had another just like it inside, which he showed the officers. He

bought the two as a matching set!

The lady couldn't disprove the accused thief's tale -- nor did she allege that he stole her chair to match his. The officers left without solving the case. The lady's chair is still missing.

  • 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.'"
