5 Reasons San Francisco Should Maybe Change Its Name to Honor All Sugar Daddies

  • Home sweet home, a dating website that pairs flush businessmen with broke babes, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in a truly bizarre fashion -- by trying to get a town to rename itself after the site.

At first, the company was only approaching towns that already had the word "sugar" in their name, such as Sugar Land, Texas. But after getting shot down in the Lone Star State, expanded its wacky business concept to California.

Now, the company is trying to cajole the wealthy town of Woodside down on the Peninsula, to finally do something that will put itself on the map. In exchange for the naming rights of Woodside, is offering the already cash-rich town $11.65 million.

Believe it or not, this proposal is on Woodside's town hall agenda for March 12. We put in a call to town manager Kevin Bryant to find out if the town was seriously considering a new identity. Here's what he told us: "I cannot imagine a scenario where that would be considered." However, he noted that Woodside is obligated to at least hear Sugardaddie out. "It's an open public comment period," he explained. "Anybody could sign up and present."

Since Bryant has already admitted Woodside isn't quite ready for a mid-life crisis, we were thinking/expecting to hit up the one place that is flush with sugar daddies: San Francisco.

Since anything is possible in San Francisco, we went ahead and drummed up some decent reasons for renaming our fair city,, CA:

5. It's only been like two weeks since San Francisco has made national news for doing something stupid and embarrassing, which in itself is stupid and embarrassing.

  • 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.'"
