Witness the battle of the blends as SF's baristas and BBQ purveyors throw down in this block party battle royale + Biergarten .
Think summer's over? Think again. The most glorious of seasons isn't over until
the fat lady sings the block party hits town, and Coffee Bar is rolling out the red carpet on September 8th. Four of the city's barbecue specialists are going head-to-head in a rib contest that will see coffee put to good use in sauces and rubs, and you're invited to sample them all (and vote for the ribs to rule them all).
Cathead's BBQ, Good Foods Catering, The Jet Set Chef and Gator's Back Porch BBQ will each be showcasing their rib preparations and a scrumptious side dish to go along with it. Wash down your meaty meal with a beer or wine from Coffee Bar's pop-up Biergarten out front.
Inside there'll be a battle brewing between SF's baristas, an elite task force that battles bad vibes with hand-crafted espresso drinks that surprise and delight. Set up as a bracket-style tournament, baristas will go head-to-head to craft their finest lattes, which will be handed out to the audience at random (cross your fingers and wear your lucky underwear). Prepare yourself, because this is going to be an event: with an MC, DJ, and a live projection of the action so that you can see these coffee artists work up close and personal.
Feeling the competitive spirit? Head on out to our sidewalk corn hole setup (we've also heard the game referred to as "bags"), where you can challenge all takers to a game of hole-in-one bean bag action. So soak up the sun, down some ribs, and get inspired by coffee at its finest. September = summer, Scoutmob style.
