Finally, Off the Grid to Make Its Oakland Debut — at the Oakland Museum

When Oakland passed its interim mobile food vending policy a year ago, allowing food trucks to hawk their wares legally outside of the Fruitvale for the first time, the people rejoiced — many of them happy, in particular, to finally get some decent lunch options near downtown workplaces, at least a couple days a week. But what everyone really wanted to know was: When was Off the Grid — the granddaddy of all food truck parties, at least here in the Bay Area — coming to Oakland?

Finally, we have an answer: On Friday, January 25 — and every Friday after that — from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Off the Grid will pop up outside the Oakland Museum of California. The weekly event will feature a lineup of ten mobile food vendors (with room to expand to as many as twelve), all parked on a single block of 10th Street, between Oak and Fallon, which will be closed off to traffic.
