Here's an exhibit I though the peeps might be interested in:

http://sfpl.org/index.php?pg=1003109001

"San Francisco Eats showcases the culinary delights that can be found in the San Francisco Public Library's collections dating back to the mid 19th century and will serve as a visual feast for visitors of all ages. From the Gold Rush to Slow Food, San Francisco has never stopped being a beacon of gastronomic delight.

This exhibition includes menus, historical photographs, an array of food writers, cookbooks and culinary history, ephemera such as coasters and matchbooks, and San Francisco food inventions, including gadgets and signature dishes."

Another article about the exhibit mentions that at least one piece of Trader Vic's ephemera will be displayed:
