'Tut at Twilight' Dinner Deal Designed to Make the de Young Experience Easier to Swallow
Those of you needing a food-related nudge to experience the beauty (good) and crowds (bummer, but the timed tickets are rumored to help) of the Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs exhibit at the de Young (50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive at John F. Kennedy) may want to pencil in a Tut at Twilight on some upcoming Tuesday or Wednesday evening.

Through September 30, the museum's de Young Cafe has a special $14 prix fixe menu, $21 if you go royal with a wine carafe. An adult ticket for the discounted Tut at Twilight museum admission is $20. Youths (ages 6-17) and FAMSF members pay $15. Behold the menu for August (after the jump). Can't say it's what King Tut ate, exactly, but it does seem to take inspiration from the eastern Mediterranean.
