The city's esteemed Dynamo Donut has teamed up with A.C.T. Theater to make the D'oh Nut, a Simpsons-themed doughnut in honor of the new show Mr. Burns, a post-electric play. It's a tasty replica of Homer's favorite treat: a zingy, light vanilla and orange zest cake with a tart raspberry Belgian-style beer glaze and rainbow sprinkles. 

They will be sold during the play's run — Feb. 18 through March 15 — at Dynamo locations in the Mission and Marina Green as well as at A.C.T. Theater.

Eater also reports that Bartlett Hall has made a Duff-like German kolsch called Burns' Brew that it'll be pouring during shows.

Mr. Burns is a play about The Simpsons, but not in the way you'd expect. From the A.C.T. website:
In a post-apocalyptic Northern California, a group of strangers bond by recreating the infamous “Cape Feare” episode of The Simpsons. From this fortuitous meeting, distant memories of “Marge” and “Homer” become the basis for shaping a new society as the play travels decades into the future. 
Sounds pretty great, actually. But if you only do one Simpsons-themed thing during the play's run, these are doughnuts not to miss, if the versions provided in a press drop this morning are any indication. In the immortal words of Homer Simpson: "Doughnuts. Is there anything they can't do?"

  • 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.'"
