We swear we can feel the LDL cholesterol that plastered itself all over our arteries, after a weekend packed with eggnog, prime rib, butter cookies, and whipped cream. We need serious roughage. And no, extra-crispy bacon doesn't count.

The Plant Café's Plant Burger should do the trick like a double dose of Lipitor. The loosely packed house-made veggie patty is a mashup of lentils, ground mushrooms, beets, cashews, and bulgur the color of red velvet cake. You can get it with avocado and cheese, and it comes with sweet roasted onion.

It can make you feel so virtuous, why not reward yourself with a couple of macarons from nearby Miette in the Ferry Building? Because, well, man can't live on bulgur alone -- even if it does come gilded with white cheddar.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
