SF Chefs Fest underway and Noisette cranking the tunes on Saturday, there is a ton to do this weekend.
After hours food trucks at SoMa StrEat Food Park
The first-ever experiment of its kind, the SoMa StrEat Food Park will begin hosting a convergence of food trucks from midnight to 4 AM on Fridays and Saturdays. Sadly, the beer and wine gets cut off at 2 AM, but a rotating slate of vendors will be operating until the wee hours to fulfill your post-midnight munchies. Get the full list of trucks here (Friday and Saturday, ongoing).

(Opening night Friday 7-11 PM, Saturday 1-5 PM, Sunday 7-9 PM, tickets range from $50-$60 includes unlimited tasting, with $2 donated to 826 Valencia, the non-profit that teaches literary skills to children, individual food from food trucks sold available for individual purchases).
