Whole Beast Supper Club Rabbit Tasting

Where: La Victoria Mexican Bakery and Café, 2937 24th St. (at Alabama), 642-7120

When: Fri., Mar. 18, seatings at 6:15 and 9 p.m.

Cost: $60 for five courses; BYOB

The rundown: Pop-up chef and Whole Beast impresario Kevin Bunnell turns all anthro-folk in his description of this month's ears-to-cottontail prix fixe at La Victoria: "Around the world, the rabbit has been honored and idolized as a symbol of abundance and sometimes as a trickster spirit, using only cunning and speed to escape its prey." Though, let's face it ― the bunnies Bunnell's turning into offal stew and sugo for pappardelle promise to be more about abundance than escape. Right?

Menu highlights: Offal Stew with yellow eye beans, black turnips, and rapini; fried shoulder with black mustard and carrot puree; braised leg pappardelle with roasted baby artichokes; carrot sponge with fennel-thyme Bavarian

  • 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.'"
