Weekly Must Reads

Getting excited for Outside Lands this weekend? Me too. Check out this helpful food truck preview from SF Weekly (but it doesn’t even come close to the number of food spots worth checking out), some beer recommendations from Dave McLean, brewmaster/owner of Magnolia Brewery and Beer Lands curator and this very, very cool article on the hackathon that will be taking place at the festival.
