Turns out, you don't need a big, violent party in the Castro to have a good time on Halloween in San Francisco. For the second year in a row, our carefree city has been deemed the best place for trick-or-treating in the nation. And really, that's what Halloween is all about -- the candy.

According to, you'll score the best Halloween loot in San Francisco's Presidio Heights, Noe Valley, Cow Hollow, and Sea Cliff -- not in that order.

Of course, if you go looking for "candy" in the Tenderloin, we're guessing you probably won't be leaving there with a bag full of Snickers.

  • 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.'"
