Really? The asking price of $9.95 seemed a bit steep for what appeared to be a glorified Egg McMuffin on Show Dogs' recently unveiled breakfast menu, especially considering our front-row view of a local taking his morning whiz on Sixth Street. But the Sunrise ShowDog was tasty enough to take some of the sting out of both. Other breakfast options here are huevos rancheros, silver dollar corn pancakes, a merguez frittata, even steak and eggs. The morning ShowDog is a house-made maple-bacon sausage under a fluffy scramble of eggs with onion, green peppers, tomatoes, arugula, cheddar, all nestled in a lightly toasted sesame bun from Acme. Miraculously, we could actually lift it to take clean bites, no fork necessary. The bun took us back to third-grade days, when mom would toast up a few slices of white bread breakfast, but a cold, thin, bitter-tasting disc of celery-root hash browns killed our nostalgia. Still, service was cheery and the manager offered to refill our mug with more Four Barrel ($2.25). He told us takeout isn't yet available for breakfast, and weekend service is coming soon.

Show Dogs: 1020 Market (at Golden Gate), 558-9560.

  • 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.'"
