Regreturature: Readings That Probably Shouldn't See the Light of the Day

Everybody has to start somewhere, and here's what happens when good writers start bad. On April 4th, members of the San Francisco Writers' Grotto will sheepishly read works they may now regret, from fiction to nonfiction, blogs, journalism, opinion pieces, even diary entries. $10 admission.

Gastronomy After Dark at The Exploratorium
3601 Lyon Street

Been wanting to know how fruit juice “caviar” and liquid nitrogen ice cream are made? Just generally into modernist cooking techniques? This is your event. You can also take part in a tastebud count, and see if you qualify as a “super-taster” (sounds like a cool designation). Learn the cultural history of the orange, then take home some experimental activities you can do with asparagus. Mysterious. $15 admission. Info.
