Bette's Oceanview Diner calls it a chocolate-espresso Twinkie, but it's really more of a Hostess Cupcake/Twinkie/espresso mashup made in heaven. Dense chocolate cake is piped in three places with an espresso-flavored pastry cream that will provoke fear in your arteries. It's the secret carb weapon at the bottom of your lunch takeout bag that's going to ensure the need for a midafternoon nap under your desk.

The most dramatic difference in a host of characteristics that set this apart from Hostess? Its one-day shelf life.

Bette's Oceanview Diner 1807 Fourth St. (at Hearst), Berkeley, (510) 644-3230.

  • 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.'"
