Being the pizza man ain't a picnic.

The hours are long, the wages are short, and your only cinematic role model is Bill Maher. Also -- it's dangerous.

We wrote about an instance in which a 60-year-old deliveryman was beaten up and relieved of his pizza earlier this month. Last night, in what appears to be a more coolly organized affair, a 54-year-old pizza man was held up at gunpoint and deprived of five pies and cash.

After a female suspect ordered the quintet of pizzas to a bogus address on the 1500 block of Underwood, the middle-aged Asian delivery driver was set upon by two black men in their 20s or 30s at around 9 p.m.

One of the robbers pointed a gun at the driver and demanded his possessions. The loss in the subsequent police writeup is listed as "5 pizzas, US currency."

The amount of currency -- or the value of the five pizzas -- is not yet known.

  • 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.'"
