BITE Silicon Valley, New Howie’s Artisan Pizza, and More


BITE Silicon Valley

Doesn’t it always seem like the cool food extravaganzas always bypass the South Bay and take place in San Francisco, Napa or Pebble Beach instead?

Not anymore.

Get ready for BITE Silicon Valley, June 5-7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

A brand-new event, it promises to showcase the intersection of food and tech in this booming, dynamic valley.

Of course, there will be a grand tasting, June 6 and June 7, with a plethora of the biggest-name chefs and wineries doling out gourmet tastes. Cooking, app and technology demos also will abound.

What’s more, on June 5, luminaries will gather at a conference to discuss such topics as: “What Are You Doing to Enable the Planet to Feed 9 Billion People”; “The Challenge of Food Waste”; “The Renewed Debate on GMOs”; and “The Story of Loco’l — Bringing Restaurants to Food Deserts.”

If you’re familiar with the latter, you know that’s the project by Coi’s Chef Daniel Patterson and Kogi Truck entrepreneur Roy Choi to revolutionize the fast-food burger industry by creating a model business that stresses good-for-you, affordable eats.

Introducing “Neighborfood” and a Food Gal Giveaway

Dishcrawl, the South Bay start-up that brings folks together for unique food experiences, is launching a new program: Neighborfood.

Like the name implies, it’s a way to enjoy eight different dishes at eight different restaurants in one afternoon. It’s a great way to get to know a community that might be new to you. Or to discover an eatery you might not have known about.

The next one takes place 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 24 in downtown Mountain View. Among the restaurants participating will be Asian Box, Bangkok Spoon and Hangen.

Tickets are $40 with proceeds benefiting the Arts Council of Silicon Valley.
