Off The Grid Returns to Fort Mason Friday

New, 2 comments

This Friday, March 23, Off the Grid returns to its original location, Fort Mason Center, to launch the 2012 season. Entering its third year, the food truck caravan promises to be bigger, better, and boozier! With 20 percent more space, Off the Grid: Fort Mason Center will have six new participating vendors a week, a beer garden, and exclusive menu items that can only be found at Fort Mason Center on Friday nights. Over 150 new vendors applied for a coveted spot, but a mere 34 made the cut. The trucks were chosen based on their understanding of the Fort Mason Center, whether the food is artisanal and local, and of course, taste. Like the rest of OTG: Fort Mason Center, most of the purveyors feature Latin and Asian cuisine.

Including Fort Mason Center, there's now 12 OTG events that take place at various locations around the city with hopes to double this number by the end of the year. Over the next couple of months, 4 new OTG spots will open starting with Thursday nights in Hayes Valley, beginning on March 29th. Friday nights in Hayes Valley will debut on April 17 making the food truck caravan a Hayes Valley hot spot 3 nights of the week. OTG: Vallejo and Front starts lunch service on Friday, April 6th, while OTG: Berry Street will serve Giants fans every Sunday home game throughout the season starting April 15.
