Cocktail Preview: S.F. Street Food Fest and Night Market

Bartenders are standing by to quench your street eat thirst

Barely recovered from the food coma of SF Chefs and Outside Lands? Buck up, it's time to grub and drink to your carts content at La Cocina's fourth annual San Francisco Street Food Festival, a celebration and fundraiser chock-full of street food and food trucks.

The cocktail bars are being organized and handled by Rye on the Road and mixed by many of your favorite bartenders from the Bay Area. You'll need to buy tokens for the drinks (each token is $4) with beers running one token ($4), and cocktails requiring two ($8). The featured beer will be Amstel Wheat and Amstel Light, which was the go-to for most last year, tapping dry about 60 plus kegs per bar. Burp.

Spreading the culinary love to two days this year, the event kicks off with a special Alemany Night Market on Friday night with special guests like BBQ pit master Rodney Scott from South Carolina, Javier Plascencia from Mision 19 in Tijuana. Unlike the Saturday day festival, tickets ($25, available online) are required to get in, but more importantly, you are not confined to the bar areas with your cocktails. This and the bar menu alone are worth the ticket price.
