It's a well-established fact that Blue Bottle at SFMOMA makes awesome food in conjunction with the museum's special exhibits, like the recent edible glitter-adorned ice cream float for the Cindy Sherman show. The pastry wizards are at it again, making a trip-colored cotton candy (flavored with orange blossom, honey, and black sea salt) based on the "Lion Man" painting in the new Paul Klee Circus show. But that's not all! Tomorrow at lunch, there will be a special pop-up from Straw, the circus-themed restaurant in Hayes Valley.

Straw will have three sliders to choose from -- the Bearded Lady (pulled pork, blackberry coulis, chipotle BBQ sauce), the Hot Tomale (buffalo chicken, gorgonzola cream, chive oil), and Portobello Cheesesteak (sauteed portobello caps, roasted red peppers, and parmesan). Eight bucks gets you a choice of two flavors and a side of house-made potato chips.

Admission to the lunch is free (11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.), but while you're there you might as well pay museum admission to check out the Paul Klee show, which features more than a dozen of his prints and drawings around the circus theme.
