You don't have to look very hard to see that San Francisco is still crazy about street food. Fancy food trucks can be found throughout the city on any given day and the weekly foodie party Off the Grid still draws large crowds Fort Mason. Starting tonight, street food fanatics can take a piece of the movement home after the Mission Street Food Book Launch. For those who have had a little too much street food and need extra encouragement-cocktail in hand, of course-California Academy of Sciences offers Workout Nightlife, with a performance by SF Cheer. Find some fun outside of city limits at the Berkeley Kite Festival and West Coast Kite Championship and see what the big stink is all about at Gliroy's Garlic Festival. Off to the clubs? Mark Farina is at Mighty for a intimate party, while Blow Up returns for a special edition with Star Eyes, Boys IV Men and more at DNA Lounge.
