Just in time for the holidays, reindeer are returning to the California Academy of Sciences. The large, sled-pulling caribou, will get quite the welcome tomorrow morning, when they walk up snow covered steps on their way into the museum.

Of course Santa will be there to greet them and usher them to their reindeer hotel -- an outdoor, fenced area for people to see them close up.

The snowy entrance of Santa's helpers kicks off the annual Academy of Science's "'Tis the Season of Science," which includes exhibits on various reindeer facts (Did you know reindeer see the world in ultra violet light?).

If you want to see the reindeer, sans kids, they'll be hanging out at the museum until Jan. 5, so you can always visit them at one of the Nightlife at the Academy events.

  • 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.'"
