Sign of Spring: Off the Grid Returns to Fort Mason

Posted By on Tue, Mar 12, 2013 at 4:10 PM

It's spring, everyone! And that means that Off the Grid is returning to its biggest location in town, Fort Mason. Starting March 22, Off the Grid will be at Fort Mason Center Friday nights with live music, 32 vendors (nearly half of them new this year), cocktails from Alembic and beers from Magnolia. Vendors will be required to debut at least one new menu item a month and regularly update their venue, so your returning favorites should offer new dishes to try.

This year's market will also feature something called Prix Fixe Dining, a fancy* area set apart from the rest where you get a multi-course meal served to you from specific vendors (*we're not sure how fancy it will be in reality, but it will be heated). Currently on the list for launch are Hapa SF, Stag Dining Group, Azalina's Malaysian, and Californios, though more could be added later in the season. Reservations for these dinners are required and should cost around $40 per person; drinks will be available but not included in the price.

Off the Grid Fort Mason will happen every Friday, rain or shine, from 5-10 p.m. Here's the full food truck vendor list (starred trucks are new to the gathering):

  • 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.'"
