Holy heck, you guys, everything is happening in San Francisco this weekend. Well, almost everything. Christmas and the Oscars aren't happening, sadly. Still, a lot of stuff is going on in San Francisco. So much so, in fact, that we need to break it down into a series of digestible posts. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, playoff games at AT&T Park, 49ers at Candlestick Park, expensive boats in the bay, Castro Street Fair, and more. First up? Fleet Week.
Fleet Week happens from Thursday, October 4 through Sunday October 7. In addition to seeing loads of serving men and women dressed in their finest armed forces garb, you will see and hear (oh brother, will you hear) the Blue Angels practicing overhead. Far more annoying that the planes wooshing overhead? Those who complain about said wooshing overhead. (These are the same people who bitch about the cold weather or how flakey people from California are, so it's best to ignore them. Everyone does.) Look to the sky during the afternoon to catch some military-style acrobatic trickery.
During Saturday's aerial exhibition, Off the Grid will host a food truck event called Off the Pier, which will feature 20 different gourmet food trucks and several outdoor bars. The perfect place for taking in the Blue Angels and/or the America's Cup races.
Lineup of vendors includes, but not limited to:
Cheese Gone Wild
Curry Up Now
Little Green Cyclo
Seoul on Wheels
Five Ten Burger
The Fish Tank
Crème Brulee Truck
