San Francisco may be known as the capital of vegetable-loving, sustainability-obsessed dining, but that doesn't mean this town doesn't eat enough sugar to bake a scale model of AT&T Park out of red velvet cake.

Today, we've decided to recap 10 of the sweets that sent us reeling. What with the pastry explosion that's covered this town in butter and caramel, not to mention the longtimers who been getting us high for years, it's been a good year for desserts. Or even desserts that mask themselves as breakfast.

  • 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.'"
