A DTLA Adventure with Bulletproof Café & King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh

Pharaonic: Treasure of the Golden Pharaoh is in LA for the last time

 

The 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb, funded by Lord Carnarvon, received worldwide press coverage.

Last week Edible Skinny was lucky enough to experience at day in Downtown Los Angeles at the Bulletproof Café and King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh at California Science Center

The day started with some DTLA butter coffee at Bulletproof Café in the Arts District! Similar to it's Santa Monica location this coffee shop a unique café and restaurant experience, complete with everything to biohack your way to higher performance! This tech friendly stylish space offers coffee drinks with added grass-fed butter or oils that aim to boost energy. While there we grabbed some Vanilla Lattes comprised of Espresso, Steamed Coconut Milk, Brain Octane, Grass-Fed Butter, and Vanilla Max. The result: a brain that was running on full throttle!

Exhibits of artifacts from King Tut's tomb have toured the world, and now are in Los Angeles.

With our brains buzzing, it was then off to the California Science Center to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of King Tut's tomb! King Tut: Treasure of the Golden Pharaoh, is the largest King Tut exhibit that has ever toured! Organized by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and the management company IMG, the new exhibition has about triple the number of objects that have previously toured, many leaving Egypt for the first time, along with advanced display technology and new science about King Tut's life, health, death and lineage. In curating new material for the exhibit, organizers said they aimed for intimate objects like the gold sandals on the mummy's feet when it was discovered, and a pair of worn linen gloves he may have used in real life. As Steve Martin would say, "How'd you get so funky? Did you do the monkey?"

So make sure to check out the Treasure of the Golden Pharaoh while it's in LA as it bound to be the last time! The exhibition will appear in 10 cities internationally over seven years, then the objects will go to the still-under-construction Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, where they will remain permanently.
