You can't get it here

Gentle Reader, although life in the Bay Area affords me access to some of the finest meats, vegetables, artisanal breads, the cuisines of nearly every ethnicity as well as fine chocolates in both conventional and organic forms, there remain numerous things yet unattainable here.

This is a partial list:
1) Wings--Aka "Buffalo wings" (with a capital 'B' for the city), these are often imitated. They usually disappoint for various reasons.

2) Pumpernickel bread--everything here is either sourdough, multi-grain with seeds, French or Italian. No Kaiser rolls either.

3) Sponge Candy--Scharffenberger may be leading the chocolate revolution from Berkeley, but they don't make sponge candy.

and the list goes on...

I'll have the LaserTron special, which now includes a slice of their pizza thrown in the cup with the loganberry.

ok -- first, loganberries do rule. just another thing we will have culinary differences on. sigh.
second, as a good journalist and purveyour of fair and balanced news, i will have to concur with louis -- it is Buffalo wings (capital B, lower w), according to The Associated Press.
