5:30 p.m. Slow Food Nation expo, Fort Mason, San Francisco.

OK, I’m in. One thing about arriving early, one avoids the hassle and crowds. This is truly a big deal.  For beer lovers the best thing of all is the beer tent – well, it’s sort of a pavilion. It’s a gauzy canvas that goes up to a peak.

There are a few standup tables line up inside rows of straw bales. In the tent there is truly lots of beer.  Keg on the left, cask straight ahead and bottles on the right.  If you’re coming, whatever night you’re coming, be early.  Also, the Taste Pavilions, beer, wine, cheese etc. are along San Francisco Bay wedged in between the Fort Mason Buildings.
Up above on the meadow, there’s going to be music; they’ve set up a stage and there are all sorts of vendors in small tents.
The music is different than the Taste Pavilions. Check out the info on Slow Food’s Web site.
