Sketch food and trucks

This new street food park in the shadow of the freeway has rotating trucks but a permanent site, with nice restrooms and seating for 100 in a large open "barn" where we can sit down to sketch in any weather. We'll start at 11:00 when it opens so we can stake out a good spot, and then pick up food and drink as we feel the need.

Getting there:

Bus lines 9, 27 and 47 go right by there. The 12, 19, 22 and 33 buses will get you within two or three blocks. From BART your best bet is to take the #9 bus from Market Street in front of Civic Center station. There is a bike lane down 11th Street, plus a lot of others in the area. I don't know what the parking situations is, or whether you can use the Costco parking lot across the street.

    Someone left behind a white plastic spray bottle. If it is yours, let me know how you'd like to retrieve it.

    I really enjoyed the day at the food park. There was much to sketch and eat. I did most of my sketching and the beginning before I gave in and bought myself a taco and a coke. The group commandeered a couple of tables near one of the park's entrances so it was easy to find as more and more people began arriving at the park. We could stay at our "camp" or roam freely. Other people in the group were friendly, which made it easy to share some of my scribbling at the end of the day. It is always a treat to see what the other artists have drawn. What a nice day to sketch!

    Street parking is not too bad if you go south and to the side streets off Bryant, such as Alameda, or on Florida street. The safeway lot is policed quite strictly. I've heard the Best Buy lot is safer, but I think on Saturday you wouldn't need to do that, you can find street parking.

    I think they have different food trucks every day, so there's a chance that somebody will be selling better coffee on the day we go there. What day of the week were you there?

    The food is pretty good, a lot of variety. Good coffee was missing how ever when I went, bring a thermos...
