What: Off The Grid: Fort Mason Center reopening
Where: Fort Mason
When: Fri., March 23, 5-10 p.m
The rundown: If bacon and egg flavored popsicles, a beer garden, and live music by the Ferocious Few aren't reasons enough to come to the largest mobile food market in California, organizer Matt Cohen says most foods are under $10. With 20 percent more space for tents and trucks, there is more protection from the elements, and 35 vendors will serve up variations of Asian and Latin cuisine, each offering a specialty food that will only be served at Off The Grid.
Among the new faces this year are Belly Burgers, ancient Mayan food by Don Paquito, and what Cohen says are the best fish tacos from Cholita Linda. If you manage not to stuff yourself and have room for a brew, local bars Alembic and Magnolia will be at the beer garden.
Admission is free and an ATM is available since most vendors are cash only.
