  1. I tried some of the items from Battery Bakery as they were doing a bake sale in the courtyard one Saturday. the cookies were excellent, although I did not try the shortbread. The muffin I had was very good. Cupcakes looked great!

    1. re: absc

      cupcakes were great. I picked one up when I was out about along California Ave on my last trip. I visited the kiosk.

    2. The RiteSpot was out of commission for a while doing some kind of update. It's back up and running, and the same kind of joint it used to be, although it somehow smells cleaner and less divey. Last night there was a great piano player and a bunch of revelers, good stuff. Kitchen menu looks like it always has, I got a basket of generic krinkle cut sysco fries to go with my beer. I feel sentimental about the place, so not to be trusted, but I do like stopping in occasionally when I'm on that side of town.
