What: Off The Grid: Fort Mason Center reopening

Where: Fort Mason

When: Fri., March 23, 5-10 p.m

The rundown: If bacon and egg flavored popsicles, a beer garden, and live music by the Ferocious Few aren't reasons enough to come to the largest mobile food market in California, organizer Matt Cohen says most foods are under $10. With 20 percent more space for tents and trucks, there is more protection from the elements, and 35 vendors will serve up variations of Asian and Latin cuisine, each offering a specialty food that will only be served at Off The Grid.

Among the new faces this year are Belly Burgers, ancient Mayan food by Don Paquito, and what Cohen says are the best fish tacos from Cholita Linda. If you manage not to stuff yourself and have room for a brew, local bars Alembic and Magnolia will be at the beer garden.

Admission is free and an ATM is available since most vendors are cash only.

  • 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.'"
