Against the glamour of the wrapped food truck, the humble cart ― not to mention the folding table ― seems human-sized. That can only add to the intimacy of Sunday's birthday party for charter members of the Mission's new-school vendors the Gumbo Man, Adobo Hobo, and the Chai Cart, all celebrating their one-year anniversary in Precita Park, even if a demi-star of basic cable chooses to show.

Joining the birthday hawkers: Magic Curry Kart, the don of last summer's street-food explosion, along with Chile Lindo, Sweet Constructions, and a handful of newer vendors (SF Delicious Chef, Mad4Madeleines, Mali Num Num), plus the debut of Mr. Arroz Caldo. And though it's an unconfirmed rumor, the street (well, Twitter and Facebook) is buzzing with the possibility of a production crew for the Travel Channel taping an episode of Appetite for Life. That's the experiential, on the road food show, with Andrew Zimmern serving as a shaven-headed Bourdain-Fieri hybrid, skilled at mugging.

Even if Zimmern ends up feeling like a party crasher, really: What's a birthday party without home movies? The party in Precita goes down Sunday, August 1, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

  • 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.'"
