Way back in January, SFoodie embarked on an epic eating spree. As a long prelude to SF Weekly's Best of San Francisco issue, due out May 19, we compiled a list of our 92 favorite things to eat and drink, revealing one each day, our own sprawling edible advent calendar.

The effort taught us a lot, like that a $60 Fast Pass is totally worth it, and you should never permanently 86 your fat jeans. And we realized, once more, what an amazing town this is for lovers of the nosh.

Today, we relive our 10 favorite sweets from SFoodie's 92, standouts remarkable for technical skill or evocative tastes or simply the way they reminded us of being kids, from our favorite handmade cookies at Piccino to the lovably clunky It's-It. Consider the list that follows (arranged in no particular order) a sweet reward for our months of intensive eating. Er, research. Grab a spoon and meet us after the jump.

  • 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.'"
