A few days ago I overheard someone talking about “Mission Street Food” and how amazing it was. This weekend I got a chance to try it for myself. I thought it might be some sort of outdoor restaurant or something, but no… It’s much more than that. It’s a grassroots movement of residents participating in what is essentially a week-long tailgate party! And it’s every week of the year!
The best part of the Mission Street Food Movement is that everyone’s invited to participate. Here’s how: Drive your minivan along Mission Street until you find a spot, whip out the home grill, and BOOM! Mission Street Food! It’s just that easy. Everyone I saw that night seemed to be cooking up the same thing: a baconator hot dog. They just wrap a dog in bacon, grill it up with some onions and spicy peppers and serve to the masses. Actually, the baconator is so prevalent, it has come to be the Mish’s only late night outdoor dining option.
I can’t wait until I buy a minivan so I can participate in the movement! It’s going to be redic. Baconators for all!
