Street Food for Singles Event Reveals New Vendors

SFoodie couldn't resist doing a quick drive-by of Friday's Street Food for Singles event on our way to the Beyoncé concert. We were glad we did, for in addition to some of our favorite pavement cuisine artists (Gobba Gobba Hey, Magic Curry Kart, Amuse Bouche, Bike Basket Pies, and Sexy Soup Cart), we noticed some new faces in the carts.

We made a beeline to taste Who's Your Daddy bacon potato chips, since SFoodie editor John Birdsall's report last week had us salivating over them. They were even better than we thought they'd be -- downright dangerous, in fact; we needed someone to take them away from us after we proved that our self-control had gone out the window.

Since there's probably no better chaser for bacon potato chips than cheesecake, we were excited to see the Sweet Cart with squares of super rich, honey-drizzled cheesecake. That alone almost made us want to nap for the rest of the night.

There was also a man mixing up elaborate bowls of salsa (and advertising salsa-making classes), a pair whipping up yummy-sounding veggie sandwiches, and a lady proffering Jell-O shots on a tray. There might have been more hidden among the crowd of 100-plus people, and also more after we left.

While we were there, so were the police to respond to a neighbor complaint, but they seemed fairly laid-back and cordial (at that point, at least). And hopefully, as was the theme of the evening, some hungry people found love.

  • 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.'"
