Candy Darling Closes, Mayhem Unveils AstroTurf, More

New, 1 comment

THE SHUTTER - Tender Nob sweet store Candy Darling has shuttered at 798 Sutter Street just before hitting its third anniversary. Although everything from the chocolate truffles to the sea salt caramels at this family-owned biz received rave reviews, it was a vacuous space for a candy shop and the rent was likely too high to be covered by candy shop profits. No word yet on whether or not the owners plan to resurface elsewhere. [EaterWire]

AL FRESCO WIRE - Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem opened its outdoor hangout zone this past Friday, complete with a deck, five picnic tables, an AstroTurfed hill, TVs and a grill available for rental. There's even corn hole and a hammock to complete the picture. Owner Duncan Ley calls it "like a smaller version of the Dolores Park hill," although unlike in the park drinking is technically allowed here. [EaterWire]

HELP WANTED - The Lower Haight's forthcoming Maven is looking for bartenders, servers and bar backs that "exude kindness, warmth, graciousness, and humility." There are other qualifications too, like you need to be gregarious. See the Craigslist post here and note that they're planning to open on December 1. [Craigslist]

POP-UPS - Here are two more pop-ups to keep on your radar. Recchiuti Confections will debut a new pop-up shop at Banana Republic on Grant Ave. this Thursday. And chefs Evan and Sarah Rich will be teaming up with pastry guru Bill Corbett for their next Chefs' Night Off dinner at Coi. This is also a chance to see D-Patt's shiny new decor. [EaterWire]

SCAMS - Via @wingwingssf: "FYI LH, just got scammed w/ a fake $100bill..younger asian dude,zipup hoodie...just realized I just described half of the city." Then later: "...on a more positive note,we have the Pineapple & Sweet Cream Pies today,which Oprah has called 'Fucking Amazing!'" [Twitter]
