Tonight: Off the Grid Upper Haight Wears Green. No, Not That Kind of Green
Everybody's Irish on St. Patrick's Day, right? Especially if you were able to find that forest-green American Apparel hoody this morning behind all those jeans belt-looped to the wall hooks. Even food-truck vendors skew Irish on Mar. 17, no matter what cuisine they take their cue from. Case in point: Tonight's Off the Grid Upper Haight, where the nine vendors slated to sell are each offering a special St. Patty's day dish. SFoodie wasn't able to nail down every vendor, but here are the five we've been able to glean:
RED R./Yelp Little Green Cyclo's green all the time.
Chairman Bao: Guinness-braised pork shoulder on panang-dyed green buns
Hapa SF: Dark chocolate Guinness brownies with Baileys glaze
Senor Sisig: House-made Guinness ice cream (guessing here, based on twitpics and wink-wink tweets)
Little Green Cyclo: Green-tea dipping sauce for the fries and tater tots
CupKates: Guinness cupcakes
See a common thread here? Widgets everywhere heave a sigh of relief on Mar. 18. Oh, and on a serious note, OtG Upper Haight vendor Onigilly is donating 10 percent of tonight's sales to Japan quake relief.
Off the Grid Upper Haight: Stanyan and Waller Streets, 4:30-8:30 p.m.
