We began this year's SFoodie Advent Calendar on Dec. 1, long before dog-eared rolls of Christmas wrap found their way out of closets, or we'd assembled 2010's official holiday party outfit (thanks, H&M!), or even before we'd committed to our moms that sure, we'd be there on Dec. 25, bearing a side dish and a better attitude than last year. Since then, SFoodie's writers have pried open the tab on a single treat a day with a sense of mounting anticipation. So here, like that stash of holiday treats you've managed ― somehow ― to hide from your spouse or partner, we offer the collected swag of December's daily Advent Calendar reveals. Thanks to Lou Bustamante, Tamara Palmer, Laura Beck, Irvin Lin, and Jonathan Kauffman, who joined me in scouring the city and the East Bay for the season's best. Merry Christmas everybody!

  • 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.
