Do you salivate with the thought of tasty street-food bargains, or do visions of renegade chefs without the official Health Department seal of approval cause a quiver in your liver? Regardless of you stance, tonight you can learn more about the culinary trend that has foodies scouring the streets at the Economics of Streetfood. The DYI spirit continues Saturday with Punch Contest, featuring concoctions from armature and professional mixologists that could literally leave you punch drunk. Dan Hoyle, a San Francisco renegade in his own respect, returns with The Real Americans, a solo performance that offers his account of a 100-day journey immersed in small-town America. Finally, San Francisco's music community continues another local trend with benefits for Haiti featuring Sila, Bayonics, and Native Elements at the Independent and a handful of top local DJs at Mezzanine.
