That's right, you can now get a beer after stopping by the Chairman Bao truck, or woofing down a grilled sandwich from Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen. For the first time, a beer and wine garden will be part of SactoMoFo, the series of mobile food festivals that draws thousands to each event. Though the event will be held on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 6th and X streets, alcohol sales were just approved for the event.
The beer/wine garden will require a 21+ wristband, and will include nine beers on draft, including selections from Sierra Nevada, Rubicon, Firestone Walker, good ol' Budweiser and more. Wines will be poured from Michael-David Winery, Ironstone, Cameron Hughes and others.
Organizers also say that SactoMoFo 4 will include tables and chairs that can seat 500. Three live bands will also perform, including reggae tunes from Mystic Roots.
"We believe a majority of the people will be coming for the food and ambience," said Paul Somerhausen, coordinator for SactoMoFo. "I seriously doubt we'll have a binge drinking kind of crowd. (Alcohol) will be more of a complement to the food, rather than a focus of the participants.'
