Off the Grid: A Street Food Lover’s Paradise at Fort Mason Tonight

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

If you haven't had tacos from El Tonayense yet, you're just hurting yourself.

What happens when a bunch of street food carts and trucks join forces?  LOTS of eating, obviously, at an awesome FREE event tonight at the Fort Mason Center!

Off the Grid is kind of like Thanksgiving — it brings together people from the same family with many differences and eccentricities for the purpose of one thing:  Giving thanks.  And tonight we shall all give thanks for the amazing street food in San Francisco.

Admission to this event is totally FREE, but the food’s not so bring some cash.  Not TOO much cash, though, unless you’re planning some kind of eating contest, which would be kind of crazy since there’s over 15 vendors slated to show up (including the Chairman Bao truck I’ve been dying to try and my usual go-to, the El Tonayense Taco Truck.)  Check out Off the Grid‘s Facebook page to see a full list of vendors so that you can start salivating early.

By the way, as if this thing could get any better, there will be live music accompanying the masticating masses, like SF’s own The Ferocious Few, who definitely have a full dance card these days.

Off the Grid FREE Street Food Event at the Fort Mason Center Friday, July 23rd, 5pm-9pm 38 Fort Mason (parking lot) [Marina/Cow Hollow] FREE

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
