Some 30 food trucks circle their wagons at SF's largest mobile-gourmet hootenannys on Friday night at Fort Mason Center (2 Marina Blvd), and Sunday midday for Picnic at the Presidio and Thursday evenings for Twilight at the Presidio (both on the Main Post Lawn). Arrive early for best selection and to minimize waits. Cash only.

Spring through fall, these weekly parties are a great way to appreciate the breadth of the SF food scene, while rubbing elbows with locals. Some of our favorites: The Chairman's clamshell buns stuffed with duck and mango, Roli Roti's free-range herbed roast chicken, and dessert from the Crème Brûlée Man. Beer, wine, and cocktails (Fort Mason only) warm you up for dancing to live music and DJs. There are other Off the Grid events in various other neighborhoods on different days, but they're smaller affairs; these three are the ones to seek out.
