If you are single, and starving, today is officially no longer Valentine's Day as you know it -- It's now National Food Truck Date Day.

Jeanna Barrett, a frustrated online dater-turned-S.F.entrepreneur, has rolled out this delicious idea that we all ignore today's lame American holiday forced on us every year and instead declare it the one day where you run around to food trucks, stuff your face, and love it.

Here's how to play:

Valentine's Day leaves couples and singles feeling broke, bored and bummed! So I thought to myself -- why not motivate everyone to change this negative Valentine's Day sentiment around?

I've had a ton of fun with changing MY attitude toward dating by doing low-key and fun Food Truck Dates, so why don't we make February 14th National Food Truck Day instead of V-Day!?

I'm picturing a day where your honey, blind date, friends with benefits, or BFFs can all come together for a little food truck grub and a fun, stress-free time - no more negative Meh Valentine's Day thoughts.

I'm envisioning a big ole fun MOVEMENT. I want to crowdsource dates from across the nation and make one fun little video of it all! It might start out small this year, but then maybe it'll grow and grow ... change starts with one little seed! And I want to change February 14th around for everyone. ♥

Help me out, lovers! I'd love for you to do a quick and dirty, fun and easy, Food Truck Date sometime next week in the name of National Food Truck Date Day!

This date can be with a boyfriend, husband, OKCupid blind date, BFF, friend with benefits - ANYONE you want. All I ask is you send me some sort of media from your date that I can include in your video.

Gorging your face off and licking your fingers without shame seems like the sexiest way to not celebrate Valentine's Day.

Eat that, Cupid!

  • 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.'"
