From the cow dung-littered fields of Vacaville comes a new sort of pie altogether ― with roots in Texas, nearly 1,600 miles from Solano County. As of this morning, an enterprising Craigslist vendor is hawking Texas-style sweet potato pies, which typically taste like well-spiced pumpkin pies, albeit earthier and a little more luscious, in our humble opinion. We haven't verified the quality but someone should. Pick up a baked one for $8.50 or have it delivered for a small extra charge. You can get frozen ones for $8. Some might even prefer buying the filling alone for $6 to pipe into their own pastry shells.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
