Vote for Your Favorite Food Vendor

Posted By on Thu, Jul 7, 2011 at 3:31 PM


We love voting! Not that it does us much good politically, but San Francisco has some of the highest turnout in the nation -- 61 percent last November, 81 percent the last time we picked a president. When it's important, we love voting even more.

So for the crucial decision of which four food vendors win La Cocina's contest for free space at its third annual Street Food Festival on Aug. 20, we know you'll follow in the grand electoral tradition by voting early and often.

The rewards for food vendors are pretty nice, especially if they're just starting out.

In addition to shared space at the festival, they'll win free commercial kitchen space -- vital for making the next step forward -- as well as small business assistance from Wells Fargo Advisers, whatever that means. ("Perhaps replace your arugula flavor with chocolate.")

Some familiar names are on the list of contenders, like Chairman Bao, Little Green Cyclo, Senor Sisig. But there are some vendors on the list of 33 contestants we hadn't heard of; if they win, we'll get to try their food. And the list could get longer, because some candidates (like Sarah Palin) might not enter the fray immediately.

Uh-oh, we just compared late-entering food trucks to Sarah Palin. Bring on the Moosemobile!

Here's the page where you can vote for your favorite vendor.

  • 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.'"
