Get an enviable Halloween haul like this one. - FLICKR/JEFFERYTURNER

Years ago, the lore of houses that gave out full-size Snickers bars or other extraordinary treats on Halloween was passed from kid to kid. These days there's the Internet, and real estate website has compiled a list of the best S.F. neighborhoods to trick-or-treat in, reports our news blog The Snitch.

According to Zillow, San Francisco is the best city in the country for trick or treating (holla!) and the neighborhoods of Presidio Heights, Sea Cliff, Noe Valley and Cow Hollow will bring kids the most loot come October 31.

The site didn't just take the wealthiest neighborhoods and leave it at that. To find the optimal, safest, most pedestrian-friendly neighborhood that would yield the most candy, they equally weighted the Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials.

So now there's no excuse to leave with that pillowcase half-full.

  • 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.'"
