What could be more exciting than taking a Luxury San Francisco Bay Cruise with America’s Cup Viewing during this summer’s America’s Cup races on San Francisco Bay.
Luxury yacht departs from Pier 3 on the Embarcadero. Cruise around the America’s Cup race course and past San Francisco’s scenic waterfront and famous landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz (the world’s most notorious prison) , AT&T Park (home to SF Giants), and Treasure Island. Sailing on San Francisco Bay is special any time, but even more so this summer during the America’s Cup Races – taking place through July, August and September 2013.

… a Fun Thing To Do on a Friday Night in San Francisco
Looking for something different to do on a Friday night in San Francisco? Check out Off The Grid – held Friday nights from 5-10pm (rain or shine) at Fort Mason Center near the Marina Green. Off The Grid features the largest market of Gourmet Street Food on the West Coast. For this city of foodies, It makes a FUN night out!
We met a few friends at Greens Restaurant (located at Fort Mason) for a glass of wine at 5pm before venturing outside to Off The Grid – an area surrounded by about 30 Gourmet Food Trucks. In the middle of it all were hundreds of people – and a band providing the evening’s entertainment. Check out our video – it was filmed at 5:30pm, BEFORE it got really crowded!
We decided to split up and walk around to each food truck and check out their gourmet offerings – there was everything from Indian and Vietnamese to Thai and Chinese. See below for a listing of the rotating Off The Grid vendors that you might expect to see on a Friday night:
