Best Bar Desserts
1335 Fulton (at Divisadero), 673-7078
The bar-snack concept attains sweet new heights at Candybar, a hip little Western Addition venue where desserts get top billing with the cocktails, suds, and vino. These aren't your basic Gummi Bear-and-biscotti meal-closers, either. Chef Kyle Caporicci's half-dozen daily offerings are unique and perfectly realized culinary creations that are scrumptious on their own or with a glass of port, vin santo, or champagne. Opt for the Fudgesicle, a bar of luscious bittersweet mousse dipped in melted chocolate, frozen, and drizzled with sweet and salty caramel; a piquant, delicately crusted lemon tartlet served with a swirl of white chocolate powder and pistachio dust; or the rich, moist pumpkinseed cake adorned with butterscotch-glazed bananas and brown butter sage ice cream. Complementing these edible artworks is a clean-lined glass-and-sculpture setting more reminiscent of a Jackson Square gallery than an Outer Lands saloon, and a beverage list that includes loose-leaf teas and espresso drinks as well as wines by the glass, beers by the bottle, and several fanciful champagne cocktails.

Best New Oldies DJ
Sergio Iglesias
Sergio Iglesias is one busy DJ. It seems like just about every night of the week, he's playing crazy cool retro music somewhere in town. On second Sundays of the month at the Knockout, he cohosts "Lonely Teardrops," the only all-doo-wop night in S.F.; on third Tuesdays at the Casanova, he offers the Ronettes, the Crystals, and other "Girl Groups"; for fourth Mondays at the Casanova, he drops boogaloos and cumbias at "Latin Fever"; on third Fridays, he spins bubbly French pop at "Ooh La La" at the Paradise Lounge; and for the last Friday at the Knockout, he delivers rowdy R&B, soul, and surf during "Teenage Dance Craze" with Russell Quan. There's no '60s genre this French dude doesn't know, and there's no better place to sample his sweet 45 collection than at his weekly Wednesday Delirium gig, "It's Monkey Time."
