From food truck to Chinese restaurant, nobody can keep those Mission Street Food folks down. If PB&J made with Kurobuta pork belly or MSF Rice fried in duck fat sound appetizing, come tonight because the menu will change weekly.
Things to do for November 06, 2008
Pork Bellies and Giant Irish Coffee
The weekend always gets a record turnout.

Round up five of your thirstiest pals and compete in Saturday's all-you-can-drink beer Olympics. The beer-tinerary includes all your college favorites (Flip Cup, Beirut, Long Pour), culminating with the mighty two-liter Boot Chug. Watch out for that bubble...
Cyperpunk sci-fi pioneer William Gibson is in town and ready to show off his eponymous collection of Porter- and Buzz Rickson-crafted laptop and shoulder bags, made with a nylon originally developed for bulletproof vests.
