  • CupKates' peanut butter chocolate and red velvet cupcakes, $3 each.

Word of advice: If you want a double chocolate cupcake from the CupKates truck, get in line within an hour after it opens.

Double chocolate was the first to sell out by 12:50 p.m. today at Off the Grid: Civic Center. Mulling options? Red velvet is better than peanut butter chocolate (all cupcakes $3). Frosting is done with a heavy hand, which looks pretty but can prove unwieldy in the great outdoors.

Outgoing supe Chris Daly was seen rushing past the Off the Grid trucks, but didn't get in line in for cupcakes or any other grub. Pity!
