Satisfy your Popeye’s Chicken craving and chat with Mission Street Food chefs! All for just $7!

McSweeney’s is hosting a book launch party at the Make-Out Room tomorrow to celebrate the publication of the MSF cookbook. Get all the details…

From the McSweeney’s website:

This summer McSweeney’s is kicking off its new food book imprint, McSweeney’s Insatiables. The first title in the series is Mission Street Food: Recipes and Ideas from an Improbable Restaurant, an inventive mix of narrative and recipes from the intrepid founders of the eponymous San Francisco food-truck-cum-restaurant-phenomenon. The book has already received the SF Chronicle’s stamp of approval. And to celebrate MSF’s release, we’re having a party on July 26 at the Make Out Room in the Mission. For the price of the $7 admission, you can chat up the book’s authors, down free beer provided by Black Star, and gorge on Popeyes chicken. (Not only is Popeyes tasty, but it’s also relevant to the book. You’ll see.) For $25.00, you’ll get all of the above, plus a signed copy of the book (which retails for $30). We recommend purchasing a ticket in advance!

For real!

July 26, 7 p.m.
