Sunday was a bit of a full circle in terms of me considering myself a San Franciscan. I covered SF Weekly’s fourth annual Dish event in the SF Design Center in Potrero Hill.

The reason I consider this a cycle, is that Dish 2010 was the first event I covered for the SF Weekly, and here I am doing the same thing again, but this time with more experience under my belt.

Vendors from all over San Francisco and the Bay Area filled the center providing samples of their dishes to all the patrons. To say it was a little overwhelming would be an understatement.

This year’s event seemed less crowded as last year’s, which took place in the evening at City View in the Metreon. I’ll chalk that one up to this year’s event was in the afternoon on a Sunday, where the last one was a Thursday night right when people were getting off work.

This event, makes a lot of sense when you consider the infinite options that San Francisco has to offer in terms of cuisine and dining. It also helps that ticket sales go to help La Cocina, an organization that helps low-income entrepreneurs develop their own businesses.

Hopefully this time next year I won’t be covering the fifth annual Dish event, and instead off in another exotic land covering something as equally diverse as this was. But that’s not to say that I wouldn’t love having this gig on my plate once again.
