We all know how hard it can be to land a table at Flour + Water if you don't have a rezzie, especially on a Saturday night. Now even Steve Jobs knows it.

Having more money than God didn't help Jobs last Saturday night, when he and a companion tried to get a table. Flour + Water publicist Liam Passmore says Jobs lined up with other table hopefuls before the restaurant opened Saturday. Turns out the people immediately in front of Jobs got the last seats. So what did the man in black do? He left. (See our photo evidence of Jobs' departure ― sorry Photoshop conspiracy theorists: it's real.)

Passmore says Flour + Water has a message for Mr. Jobs: Come back! He said that this time, the restaurant will seriously hook him up with a table, a way of making good on a night that turned as janky for Jobs as the reception on an iPhone 4.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
