Bites Off Broadway Season Debut

Fridays, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Continues through Oct. 9
510-597-5027
Bites Off Broadway Season Debut
There might be bigger food truck gatherings, and ones that attract slightly trendier vendors, but for our money, Oakland’s first officially sanctioned “food pod,” Bites Off Broadway (365 45th St., in front of the Studio One Art Center), is still one of the most charming of its kind. The uber-family-friendly event kicks off its fifth season on Friday with a lineup of six street food vendors, including old favorites (e.g., Fist of Flour Pizza and Ñora Mobile Spanish Cuisine) as well as relative newcomers (Burnt Ends BBQ and Curbside Creamery). A veritable smorgasbord of face-painting, balloon-twisting, and hula-hooping should keep the kids entertained — and maybe help those of us who are only young in spirit to burn off some of those extra calories. Bring your own lawn chairs and picnic blanket. Free
