FOOD FESTS - According to Mission Mission there were lines 50-deep at all of the booths at the San Francisco Street Food Festival on Saturday. Mission Loc@l took a video of the chaos, Burrito Justice has a panoramic slide show and SFoodie covers the liquid angle and has a lengthy visual. Add in recaps from the Examiner, GrubStreet and Single Guy Chef and you really should get a great idea of how the second annual street eats festivus shook out. [Various]
