.Bites on Broadway: Long Lines and a Last-Minute Change

Oakland’s first-ever event devoted to street food brought as many as 600 to the Temescal Friday night. Bites on Broadway — the Friday night food pod scheduled for the summer — featured snaking food lines, lawn games, and an unexpected venue shift. Organizer Karen Hester had hoped to set up on the broad plaza in front of Oakland Technical High School, but lacking permission from the school district, Friday’s handful of vendors set up instead on 45th Street, along Tech’s northern perimeter.
