And, now you can take your fancy cocktail anywhere on festival grounds.

This year marks quite a few firsts for La Cocina's SF Street Food Festival, including a new location at Pier 70, more vendors and partners like Noise Pop and The Midway to beef up programming. (Check out the full lineup here.)

Now organizers have announced more additions to the upcoming festival, which takes place August 15-16. An expanded selection of specialty cocktails and beers is part of the lineup, from drinking experts like Odd Job, Locanda and Café Du Nord, available for purchase in taster size ($8) or large ($12). Additionally, more beers will make an appearance at the Whole Foods Market Hops & Crafts Beer Garden, where Magnolia, Anchor Steam, Stone Brewery and others will serve their brews. And this year, drinkers can tote their beverages throughout the festival, rather than being restricted to certain areas.

There'll also be a live cooking stage from Whole Foods, with demos from SF Chefs, as well as some of La Cocina's entrepreneurs. Expect participation from chefs like Anthony Strong of Delfina, who will be preparing pane al pomodoro and Flour + Water's Thomas McNaughton, who will share some of his tricks for homemade pasta. And, new this year as well, is a Makers Market, where festival attendees can buy packaged food and goods from Whole Foods' Small Producer Grant program. Local vendors will include Petite Pot, Revive Foods and Omnivore Salt, among others.
