Off the Grid at Fort Mason Center tonight features a soft launch of the liquid kind. Making its debut: mobile vendor Curbside Coffee, in a trailer pimped out with an espresso machine and grinder, a Bunn drip unit, and a load of pastries (including curry pan) from Bernal's Sandbox Bakery.

Co-owner Jordan Greene worked in the Peet's wholesale department for six years before defecting to the tech sector (his business partner, Phil Nguyen, is a tech guy, too). Greene's rifled through his address book to outfit Curbside Coffee, though. The beans are from San Rafael roaster Weaver's, begun by Peet's prodigy John Weaver; the milk is Clover. Menu offerings include drips, espresso drinks, mocha lattes, hot chocolate. Even Vietnamese cà phê sua da.

As for life beyond the Grid? Greene and Nguyen plan on working the San Francisco pavement. "We have couple of locations in mind, obviously on the street," Greene tells SFoodie. "We want it to be a place people can find us and understand it's worth a trip to the corner for."

Curbside Coffee: Debuts tonight at Off the Grid, Fort Mason Center; track the trailer's future movements on Twitter and Facebook.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
