Doggy Bag: Today's Odds and Ends

Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Gas hog: We love the smell of subversion that hovers around a rickety street cart, but we're completely gobsmacked poring over pics of Maximus Minimus. Foodzie introduced us via tweet to the food truck shaped like a pig -- it started hawking pulled-pork sandwiches in Seattle earlier this month. The name references some yin-yang notion of spicy and sweet that sounds, frankly, like a late-night concept better carted away with the empties in the morning. But hey, no doubt we're merely jealous a fleet of pig wagons aren't leaking oil on the streets of S.F.

Trippy: At Bay Area Bites, Andrew Simmons shows why he just might be our favorite blogger of things edible. Consider yesterday's gnarled tour de force about local food site Weird Vegetables: Stuffed into the blog's strange sieve of language and thought, vegetables are not merely waxed, sticker-tagged produce; they are characters. Identities, needs, wants, and feelings squirm within their husks and peels as well as flavors and nutrients. Total Hieronymous Bosch freak-out.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
