The Bay Area’s best food vendors will be serving up ube specials from 11:00 am through 4:00 pm on Saturday, August 24th with local DJs providing the soundtrack of Bay-centric hits. We already mentioned the ube ice cream & ube-crusted pizzas, but there will also be ube macarons, ube rice krispies, ube cupcake flans and so much more.
