Street Cart Wars to Benefit SF Food Bank

by arnold on August 9, 2010


The blog’s been on hiatus for a few months, and I definitely have some fun things I want to write about, but right now, I’m promoting the annual fundraiser for the San Francisco Food Bank known as Eugeapalooza. The fundraisers were started by my friend Eugene Lee in 2005, and last year’s event, known as PigEat Fest, raised more than $2500 (equal to approximately $24,500 in food for the food bank).

Held at Lake Merced in San Francisco, this year’s event is known as Street Cart Wars and will showcase creations by some of the Bay Area’s most ambitious home cooks. It will also feature Ad Hoc Executive Chef Dave Cruz, who will be donating his time and culinary mastery to help the cause and feed attendees.

Pre-sale tickets (via PayPal) are $20 for adults until the end of day on Tuesday Aug. 10 and are eligible for a raffle for prizes that include a signed copy of the Ad Hoc at Home cookbook, bottles of wine, and more! From August 11–13 tickets are $25 for adults, and the price goes up to $30 on the day of the event. Children’s tickets (ages 10 and up) are $10 and children under 10 eat free. Each entrant will receive 12 tickets good for one plate of food at the following booths:

  • 63 Degree Sous Vide Egg; Canape; Roasted Bone Marrow & Sangria by s+s gastro grub (featuring Ad Hoc’s Dave Cruz)
  • Adobo & Lumpia by Sinigangster
  • Bacon Cheddar Sliders & BBQ’d Corn Dogs by Meat-Cheese-Bacon
  • Banh Mi Four Ways (Shrimp, Beef, Chicken, Wheat Gluten) by Banh Mi Gently With A Chainsaw
  • Banh Xeo by The Sizzling Pan
  • Buffalo Wings by Euge
  • Burmese Tea Salad by Singh Ki Dukaan
  • Chicken Tikka Masala by Kafe Kevo
  • Mac & Cheese by i (heart) chez
  • Midwestern Dessert by Fat + Sugar
  • Pulled Pork Tacos with Ancho Chili Sauce & Slaw by Cocina Bronia
  • Tandoori Ground Lamb/Beef Kebab with yogurt sauce by The Trashy Tandoor!

You might be wondering why Inuyaki isn’t listed as one of the vendors at this event. I had planned to participate, making either my Tocino Sliders or Korean BBQ Tacos, but I have family in town this weekend and didn’t have the time. I will be at the event as an eater, and I’ve also extended my support to my friends (and neighbors) Seb and Simone as an official sponsor of their s+s gastro grub booth.

Other sponsors of the s+s gastro grub booth include:

These companies’ sponsorship of s+s gastro grub for this event are helping offset costs for Seb and Simone so they can make a larger personal donation to the SF Food Bank. I’m honored to be in such prestigious company to help out this cause.
