  • It's a question you might not be asking after a good meal.
Those of you needing a food-related nudge to experience the beauty (good) and crowds (bummer, but the timed tickets are rumored to help) of the Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs exhibit at the de Young (50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive at John F. Kennedy) may want to pencil in a Tut at Twilight on some upcoming Tuesday or Wednesday evening.

Through September 30, the museum's de Young Cafe has a special $14 prix fixe menu, $21 if you go royal with a wine carafe. An adult ticket for the discounted Tut at Twilight museum admission is $20. Youths (ages 6-17) and FAMSF members pay $15. Behold the menu for August (after the jump). Can't say it's what King Tut ate, exactly, but it does seem to take inspiration from the eastern Mediterranean.

First course:

A trio of summer tomato soup with feta, cucumber-garbanzo salad with oregano vinaigrette, and tabouleh with lots of parsley, served with warm cumin pita chips


Grilled Marin Sun Farms beef tenderloin skewer, served with saffron-currant couscous, eggplant stew, and minted yogurt


Local strawberry and rhubarb tart with warm caramel, milk-chocolate cigar, and lemon cream

  • 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.'"
