Eat Drink SF

I’m going to share a secret with you, are you ready? The most popular stories in our magazine are not the investigative pieces we plan and work on for months, or the human interest community pieces either. Nope, it’s all the stuff about food. Yep, food. Drinks, too, actually. But maybe that comes as no surprise. After all, these are the things we literally need to live and as much as we consume them, they consume us. Daily, we’re bombarded with stylized images of cronuts, acai bowls, macarons, pizza, sushi, bacon-wrapped things on all of our social media feeds, tv, and on magazine covers at grocery store checkouts — ahem. So it’s no wonder that people flock to food festivals and starting Thursday, one of the biggest ones in the Bay Area is kicking off.

More than 160 restaurants, 70 bars, distilleries, breweries and wineries will be offering bites and pouring drinks throughout the weekend at Eat Drink SF. Eat Drink SF, now in its ninth year, brings together renown tastemakers to share with you the very best in food and drink alongside curated experiences and programming to keep you engaged and entertained. No other food festival puts as many things under one roof and still gives you room to breathe, and your ticket includes everything. Meet and eat with the chefs and beverage community that make the San Francisco Bay Area a world-class dining destination. Experience the deliciousness for yourself.
