Since Outside Lands is as much about the music as it is the food, and the food as it is the drinks, the Outside Lands Summer Pairings Series returns to prime palates before the festival. This year, the Series is comprised of three events that just so happen to underline San Francisco’s red hot Filipino food movement. The supremely popular Pinoy Heritage, which is new to the festival and was just recently honored as a San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 Restaurant (2019), will team up with Harmonic Brewing on July 14th and Adrian Wong of Trailblazer Tavern on July 27th, while Senor Sisig will team up with Woods Beer Co. and Bay Area hip hop artist P-Lo for an unforgettable event on July 28th. 21+ only.
Pinoy Heritage & Harmonic Brewing
Street Food & Brews
Sunday, July 14, 2019; 1-7PM
at Harmonic Brewing (1050 26th St, San Francisco, CA 94107)
As Pinoy Heritage serves street food inspired eats, like Sisig fried rice, skewers, lumpia and house-made pancit, guests can sip on Harmonic Brewing’s (a Beer Lands veteran) finest brews and listen to jams by DJ Henry and DJ Squintz, who will be spinning their favorite artists from the festival’s 2019 lineup, including Childish Gambino, Lil Wayne, Ella Mai, P lo, Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals All are welcome; no tickets required.
Pinoy Heritage & Adrian Wong of Trailblazer Tavern
Saturday July 27, 2019; 5:30PM-8:00PM
A Kamayan Dinner
at Picnic on Third (493 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94107)
Perfectly suiting the communal dining to be had at Outside Lands, Pinoy Heritage will host a “kamayan” dinner. Deriving from the word “kamay,” meaning “hand,” this Filipino tradition is one where the whole family — or even the whole village — gets together to share a meal using their hands. Guests will feast from a table layered with banana leaves, a spread of rice and different “ulam” or main dishes that showcase the freshest ingredients. Adrian Wong of Trailblazer Tavern, will prepare a Chika chika happy hour drink, “Smooth Sailin,” named after Leon Bridges (on the Outside Lands 2019 lineup) and made with Mango coconut pandan, beefeater 23 and calvados. All are welcome; tickets are required and available at this link ($85).
Senor Sisig, Woods Beer Co. and P-lo
Sunday, July 28; 1pm - 5pm
701 Valencia Street, San Francisco
Just a few blocks away from their upcoming restaurant at 990 Valencia
Bay Area’s loved food truck Senor Sisig, an Outside Lands veteran, is celebrating its upcoming brick and mortar restaurant with an unforgettable Summer Pairings hosted with Woods Beer Co. and Bay Area hip hop artist P-Lo, both of which are on the Outside Lands 2019 lineup. Woods Beer Co. will pair a selection of its ales with Senor Sisig staples, from Burritos and Tacos, to limited edition menu items like Nacho-rrones and Ube Horchata.
