The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

You know how old recipe books you don't really cook from anymore become dust collecters on the shelves, or languish, their covers curling, on the floor next to the nightstand? Well, Inside Scoop reports that the Chronicle's Food and Wine department has found a novel way to get rid of its cases of The San Francisco Chronicle Cookbook from 1997.

Haighteration's Andrew D. gets the scoop on Ragazza's new to-go menu, plus Three Twins' orange-and-black(ish) Giants tribute ice cream we missed last week. Come on, now, be honest: Was it planned as a Halloween ice cream before this whole World Series thing took off?

And because victory ― even if it plays out like it's been totally scripted ― is sweet as a strawberry agua fresca from the bottom of the jar, Mission Mission drops the Hulu link to the Season 7 Bobby Flay-Papalote Throwdown that tore up Food Network last February. Well, roughed it up a bit.

  • 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.
