San Francisco Street Food Festival - 8.20.11
For those that haven't heard, half our team will be off to San Francisco next week to serve up banh mi and pad thai tacos at the San Francisco Street Food Festival. The festival is scheduled for Saturday, August 20th from 11AM-7PM.
The festival itself is going to be fantastic. An estimated 50,000+ San Franciscoan's are projected to come out for the event, which consists of over 60+ types of vendors. In addition to the San Francisco based vendors, there are also food trucks from 6 other cities (identified as street food hotbeds) including the well known Skillet trailer from Seattle and the Nom Nom truck from LA of Food Network fame. We are pumped to be a part of this eclectic group of vendors.
The days leading up to the event are going to be chaotic at best. We'll have less than 48 hours to prep for 3,600 tacos. This all while having to train our prep cooks, line cooks and other volunteers assisting us the day of the festival. It's going to be non-stop work, but in the end we hope that San Francisco get a feel for what our food and the peached tortilla are about.
For those that have family and/or friends in San Francisco, be sure to let them know we'll soon be on our way. It's time for the West Coast to get peached.
