Because all rappers need their streetwear affiliations, Heart Break Gang leader and East Bay rap maven-in-the-making Iamsu! has a budding partnership with Pink Dolphin, the outrageously popular apparel house that recently opened a shop in the Upper Haight. In addition to its seapunky design aesthetic, Pink Dolphin is notable for a philosophy of making only a very limited number of each item in its line -- so you know that if you bought that $34 puffer fish T-shirt, you aren't too likely to find someone else wearing it.

Anyway, Su's been seen haunting the Pink Dolphin 'hood before, but this Saturday, he'll be back there in person to launch a new mini-line he developed with the label's designers, as well as a new mixtape. Catch is, you gotta be there in the flesh, 'cause this mixtape is only going out on CD -- and word is that 'Su will be announcing a special event for Saturday as well.

'Su's 8-piece Pink Dolphin "capsule collection" consists of a long-sleeve T-short, short-sleeve T-shirt, zip-hoodie with removable sleeves, jogger pants, shorts, short-sleeve denim button-down shirt, camo/denim reversible bucket hat, and camo 5-panel hat. You can only buy this stuff at Pink Dolphin this Saturday, Feb. 15, from 12-4 p.m., in the company of Iamsu! and the HBK Crew. Depending on your tolerance for lines and mystery, we'd advise hardcore HBK fans to clear their schedule for that night as well -- new clothes may not be the only thing our burgeoning rap crew has in store for Saturday.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
