San Francisco Turkeys Gobble This Thanksgiving Meal

Posted By on Wed, Nov 21, 2012 at 8:01 AM

We never really considered how turkeys give their thanks until we saw these San Francisco heritage breed turkeys enjoy their own special Thanksgiving meal yesterday at the Children's Zoo.

Named after famous chefs and food personalities, Alton Brown, Giada de Laurentiis, Lidia Bastianich, Paula Deen, and Rachael Ray gobbled down this medley of mush before giving the zoo its own critique of the simple cuisine.

On the menu: mixed greens with shredded carrot, zucchini, apple, melon, and grapes.

The birds were reportedly dissatisfied by the bland meal, yet thankful that they were not on the menu.

  • 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.'"
