Hayati and I at the Gilroy Garlic Festival last Saturday
ok i lie. i’m on the brink of tears, actually. why?
cuz i just signed up for the SF STREET FOOD SCAVENGER HUNT. and i got hella excited cuz i would fucking OWN that shit.
The Go Game presents: “Go Game Street Food Adventure”
Think you know everything about food in SF? Well, prove it! Over 3 weeks, beginning on August 1st and going all the way THROUGH August 22nd, San Francisco’s best restauranteurs, famous (and infamous) street food vendors, devoted food producers and hidden puzzles will come together to create a labyrinth of food-related challenges for you to navigate. Play in teams (easier to eat more food that way!) or on your own, but make sure you play! The game will take place all over SF, but you will be able to play at your leisure – from home, work or a fancy coffee spot – and the game will lead you to specific street food havens on the weekends! The game will culminate in the Bay’s best day of eating on August 22nd at San Francisco’s first Street Food Festival! At the festival, the final scores will be tallied and bragging rights will be awarded!
i was already recruiting team members and constructing a game plan… and then… as i’m giving my team a pep talk, i realize that its starts this saturday.
THIS SATURDAY. the same Saturday i’m going to American River to go RAFTING. fool, i dont even swim. and frankly, i think i’d rather eat around the city than drown in Sacramento! WAH.
not only that, but the end of the hunt will be on the creme de la creme of all food festivals. the SF Street Food Festival! which is also when i’ll be in Vegas. is it sad that I’d rather stay home and eat than party like a rockstar in the city of sin? i’m SERIOUSLY thinking about rearranging my plans for the month.
with that said, if ANYONE in SF wants to take over my team, holla at me and do me proud. puh-leeassee.
***EDITOR’S NOTE*** Matt from @sfstreetfood just made my month! looks like i CAN participate after all. SF YOU AINT FUCKIN READY.
