Way back in September, you made some grandiose announcement you'd be cooking Thanksgiving this year. Now, two days out, you're freaking, imagining a Turkey Day eve spent fishing a rock-solid Butterball out of the Safeway freezer bin. Relax. SFoodie's offering last-minute suggestions even an obsessive procrastinator could be thankful for.

Butterfly (Pier 33 on the Embarcadero) is putting an Asian fusion-y twist on Norman Rockwell. Butterfly's four course, $45 T-day dinner lets you dig in for seconds. Amuse choices include king salmon, citrus salad, or an oyster duo with Bloody Mary shooter. First-course choices are curried pumpkin soup or pear and endive salad with Hawaiian bread and Roaring 40's blue cheese muffin. Entrees: wood-oven-roasted Diestel turkey breast, or decadent duck-fat-fried turkey leg, with cornbread and Canadian bacon pudding, twice-baked potatoes, and other sides (look over the entire menu here). Three-way dessert (yes, you can have it all) includes pumpkin tart, chocolate pecan bar, and apple turnover with Mitchell's vanilla ice cream. Dinner starts at 5 p.m. Call Butterfly at 864-8999, or swing by OpenTable.

  • 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.'"
