Yes, folks, this is the last Dirty Dishes as we know it. In grand finale fashion, six reasons to come to the Dirty Dishes is Dead!?!: Holiday Benefit and Grand Finale!
1. This is it.
After a triumphant year that has seen us pack the house from day one, showcase SF's finest food carts and DJs, and create an one-of-a-kind scene, Dirty Dishes as we know it is going out with one last bang! Not sure what is coming next, but we're gonna take a little holiday break, regroup, and figure out what comes next in 2011. For those of you who have been coming up with excuse after excuse and for those of you who have perfect attendance records, the time is now.
2. Do it for the future chefs of America!
This Dirty Dishes will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco's Culinary Arts program. Proceeds from the special presale only package tickets will go to them, as will money collected that evening. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this option, not only is it a great deal but you'll be bringing some holiday joy to kids in need. Only $9.99 for cover, food item of your choice, and a specialty shooter! Buy tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/140055.
3. The debut of the TASTY Fried Chicken Cart!
Yes, our one and only Chef Christian and the Tasty crew will be serving up Mama Reyes' Famous Fried Chicken you know and crave. Depending on its success, who knows, you may be seeing it popup around town...
4. Pork Belly Bahn Mi & Handmade Ice Cream Sandwiches.
We're excited to pair our fried chicken with the veteran food carters Kitchen SideCar (pork belly bahn mi! braised mushroom/greens with miso sauce!) and Dulceria (handmade ice cream sandwiches!). COME HUNGRY!
5. Dirty Dishes is Dead DJ sets!
We've had a great run at the LookOut, with us packing the dancefloor there better than any party they throw, thanks to you all. Sam (Gordon Gartrell) and Brent (B-Haul) will be taking out Dirty Dishes with a bang from 10pm-2am, joined by our very own Special K(yla) from 9-10.
6. Holidays means Presents.
Stick around till midnight and we'll be giving away some special treats (sounds like "late night eats") to all the good girls and boys who've stuck around!
$9.99 pre-sale ticket (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/14005) includes admission, specialty shooter, a food ticket, and a donation toward the Boys & Girls Club of San Francisco's Culinary Arts program. Admission is $3 at the door but we strongly encourage you to purchase a pre-sale ticket. When you do, you make an impact on the kids of our city!
