Gary Danko, can I just call you Caligula? Along with 49 of his star chef cohorts, San Francisco's own Danko deliciously entertains his last meal in a Time magazine preview of the newly released book My Last Supper: 50 Great Chefs and Their Final Meals. In by far the most elaborate photo shoot of the preview, Danko, who wants his final feast "eaten by hand like at a Roman or Greek banquet," appears laughing uncomfortably atop a mountain of satin, grapes, and pomegranates as two, uh, enthusiastic ladies feed one another nearby.

Setting aside the bizarre awkwardness of the photo itself, Danko's chosen feast does sound appropriately decadent: "caviar, spit-roasted suckling pigs, black truffles wrapped in salt pork, and a roasted Bleu Bresse chicken." One question: Where did they find those Roman hos?

  • 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.'"
