Don't Worry, Eat Curry

Where: McCoppin Hub (at Valencia)

When: Saturday, Aug. 6, 5-9 p.m.

Cost: As the curry costs

Off the Grid is trying out its second themed dinner night, and this time it's curry.

The six vendors at OTG's McCoppin Hub site on Saturday will all create at least one curry dish. Unlike last month's theme event, this time you can try as much or as little as you like.

Looking at the lineup, this is going to be less of a stretch for some trucks than others.

Japacurry: Japanese pork katsu curry

Curry Up Now: Goat curry; chicken vindaloo

Hiyaaa: Stewed Asian fusion chicken curry

Kasa Indian Truck: Goan fish curry; kati rolls

Sanguchon: Pollo al curry; bolita de yucca; pork estofado

Tomkat: Chinese curry chicken

Off the Grid founder Matthew Cohen says that while last month's system of selling five-item ticket books for the off-menu-only special items was a success -- more than 100 books were sold -- it's just easier for everyone involved to make all the special dishes à la carte.

"We're so busy, we don't have time to mess around with the tickets," he says. "But the theme nights will definitely continue. It's fun -- it gives the vendors a chance to show us what they can do."

Most curry dishes will cost $7 to $10. The vendors will also have other dishes available for people who don't like curry (we're told they exist.) Visit Off the Grid's Facebook page for more info.

  • 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.'"
