Eat Real 2010

More and more and more sunshine. These were taken in a friend's backyard. I'm standing in an empty fish pond and drinking a mocha from Martha & Bros., trying not to think about all the cocktails I foolishly consumed the night before, at both Mango and Cockblock, nor how I was still fighting a nasty summer cold. M & I were waiting for company before heading down to Jack London Square for the 2nd annual Eat Real Festival, an amazing weekend full of the greater SF Bay Area's best street food carts, local beer and wine, entertainment and the most current, informative happenings in the world of slow food and sustainable eats.

This is FFAF's 2nd year at the festival! It was a gorgeous day. We ate so much, we drank a lot, we all stripped down because it got so bloody hot, and we sat in the shade to watch the most incredible butcher contest I've ever seen before in my life (okay, so it was the only one I've ever seen). Another great year with the best friends at a superbly done event. GO OAKLAND!

Here are some fun pics from the day (trigger warning for folks who don't eat pork, I guess):
