Get there after what you guess was the lunch rush, and Delessio's pay-by-the-pound buffet can feel like a wedding spread after the guests have moved on, when the band's free to pile up plates. Plenty of time to read, for instance, that the beef in the meatloaf is from Marin Sun Farms, though with its double slather of barbecue sauce and tomato jam ― an approximation of ketchup, only sweeter ― you can't exactly taste it. Go for the spinach sautéed with raisins, pine nuts, and sherry vinegar, and what you get is a lunch that glorifies the sweet-tart condiment. End result: Your reward of Chocolate Bubble-Wrap tastes that much more plush.

Delessio Market & Bakery 1695 Market (at Valencia), 552-5559

  • 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.
