These days, you're not a proper lifestyle magazine if you can't throw a proper party. Next weekend, Sunset, the Menlo Park-based West Coast lifestyle magazine, is holding its annual Celebration Weekend. The event will take place on the venerable publication's seven-acre grounds ― yeah, magazines had more money back when Sunset debuted ― and will include a glam-camping expo, wine seminars, test-garden tours, an artisan-foods exhibit hall, and, of course, cooking demonstrations from the likes of Kogi BBQ's Roy Choi and 4505 Meats' Ryan Farr. 


year, Sunset is also honoring the West Coast's biggest food trend by

bringing down food trucks from around the Bay Area: Sam's

Chowder Mobile, Liba Falafel Truck,

Seoul on Wheels, Gelateria CiCi, the

Kara's Cupcakes Karavan, and Fruit

n' Exotica. (Surely the organizers could have found one taco truck? SFoodie would

be happy to provide suggestions.) It's a gathering of trucks that rarely park within the same county as one another, allowing anyone playing street-food bingo to check off quite a number of boxes on the grid.

Event details:
Sunset Celebration Weekend
When: Sat.-Sun., June 5-6, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: 80 Willow Road, Menlo Park [Map]

Price: $16 general admission, $12 adults ages 60+, free for children under 12

  • 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.'"
