Street Food Festival Founder Envisions Two Days, Theme Buses

Caleb Zigas

We ran into La Cocina executive director Caleb Zigas in line at Blue Bottle at Ferry Plaza today — he was waiting, we don't have the patience — and asked what his plans are for next year's Street Food Festival.

Turns out Zigas has some big dreams: a two-day festival with theme buses bringing folks from different parts of the city.

Unlike many dreamers', Zigas' ideas should not be easily dismissed. This is a young guy who thought, “Hey, let's make San Francisco's biggest food event happen on the streets of the Mission with fine dining restaurants lining up to sell mini bites alongside taco vendors, and practically the whole area supporting us.” Last week he made that happen.

So what's next?
