Anyone planning on attending this year's A Taste of Tamales By The Bay, tomorrow (the 13th) at the Fort Mason Center in SF? http://www.tamalesbythebay.org/ Any previous attendees? I would love to hear some reports about it. If tickets weren't out of my budget for the weekend (They are $40 at the door), I would definitely make a stop there for lunch, after the SF Chocolate Salon (also at Fort Mason tomorrow). Especially since I heard from the Mateo Granados people today at the Santa Rosa Farmer's Market that he will have duck tamales at this event. I'm a sucker for a duck dish. Maybe next year for me.
In the mean time, reports from last year? Maybe any CH'ers who visit tomorrow can post some reviews here afterwards.
Some of the other vendors listed on the site, were Rancho Gordo, and Maria Martinez, the "Tamale Queen," who apparently has an espresso cafe on Fruitvale Ave in Oakland.
