Tuesday Newsday: 5/17

Off the Grid: Fort Mason Center (http://www.jchangy.net/)
Hawker Fare: You guys. People are losing their shit over the opening of Hawker Fare. I haven't seen this many SF blogs get excited over Oakland since Plum (which some even manage to bring up in their articles) started doing brunch, and now it's finally open. Although I'm seriously creeped out by the picture Grubstreet ran with their story, they have most of the deets about the Asian street food place, helmed by Commis chef-owner James Syhabout. There will be rice bowls, which frankly sound delicious, and everything will be priced for under $10, which sounds even better. They opened today for lunch/early dinner, but if you're like me and can't make it over there before 7pm you'll have to wait until the 26th, when they hope to start serving dinner.

Off the Grid: In other, slightly less-hyped news, SF's Off the Grid has plans to roll over to North Berkeley on Wednesday in June. The wildly popular food-truck events have spawned eight different weekly events in SF, and organizer Matt Cohen is hoping to translate that success onto North Shattuck and Rose. East Bay Express has the full story. UPDATE: Berkeleyside has more! Including some news on the vendors to look for, like Cupkates and Liba Falafel (a personal fav since I've had to both interview and FC with Gail, the owner). Damn I'm hungry!

Rock Wall Wine Company: And last but not least, Rock Wall Wine Company opened up their tasting room in Alameda this past weekend. The winery, located in a converted airplane hangar, gets its name from a nearby rockwall, and is conveniently situated near Hangar One vodka distillery, further necessitating the need for a ride when in the area.
