  • The Sprinklesmobile is gone, but a brick-and-mortar shop is planned for S.F.
We're guessing the Sprinklesmobile has made its long, straight trip down Interstate 5 by now, and is all tucked up amid the incandescent warmth of Beverly Hills. The Southern California-based mobile cupcake equivalent of the Dodgers was in Justin Herman Plaza yesterday, on the home turf of Kara's Cupcakes' Karavan, the Giants in our clever baseball metaphor (the Karavan was on the DL, apparently). The Sprinklesmobile also parked in front of the Contemporary Jewish Museum at Mission near Third Street, not far from the Yelp offices, but, according to a "bummed" SFoodie reader, was a no-show at Twitter.

And while the Sprinklesmobile is gone, the north-south rivalry isn't over ― not by a long shot. Yesterday a company source told SFoodie that Sprinkles plans to open a permanent shop in the Union Square area sometime in late 2010 (the chain's current northernmost outpost in the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto).

Time for Kara's to open a shop in West Hollywood?

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
