From Big Bear:
“Big Bear Cafe is having a neighborhood luau next Friday (3/16), and Saturday (3/17), with chef Adam Greenberg from the new Coconut Club restaurant (coming to Union Market!).
Adam is a 4-time-winner of “Chopped” and will be serving up his Hawaiian inspired cuisine, including his famed spam fried rice.
It will be open to all (no tickets), very kid friendly, and heavy drinking (Tiki bar!).
Hope to see you there.
5pm-10pm each night”
