Orange County Market Place
Sunday, September 27, 2015 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There are two things Samuel Adams is known for — being a founding father of the United States of America and brewing some tasty beer. And there’s no better way to celebrate Octoberfest than at the Samuel Adams Octoberfest Experience, kicking back with a towering mug of ice cold beer while hearing music from a lineup of accordion-based bands, including Jim Gilman und Der Burgermeisters, as part of the annual O.C. Accordion Festival, aka “The Big Squeeze.”
Inside Costa Mesa’s Orange County Market Place, the weekend swap meet at the OC Fair & Event Center, this ultimate beer festival is overflowing with activities: a stein-hoisting competition with a beach cruiser bike prize and live performances from the Doo Wah Riders (country), Los Fabulocos (Tex-Mex), Bonne Musique Zydeco (Cajun/Zydeco) and The Ploughboys (Celtic). Admission also includes your choice of four 12-oz. Samuel Adams fall seasonal Octoberfest brews, Gaslamp popcorn, a giant pretzel and a food option from one of three gourmet food trucks.

* Additional fees apply. No coupon or promo codes necessary to enjoy the displayed discount price.

The Lobos Truck

Cuisine Type: American Comfort Food
Established: 2012
Most popular offering: Chinook Burger
Kid-friendly: Yes
Alcohol: None
Delivery / Take-out Available: Takeout Only
Owned and operated by Chef Jasmine, the mobile eatery’s menu specializes in classic American comfort food. Few foods inspire the warm fuzzies like burgers, criss-cut waffles fries, and mac ‘n’ cheese, but the mobile eatery’s chefs invest each dish with a gourmet twist. For instance, the Chinook Burger—the truck’s most popular offering—upgrades the standard quarter-pound Angus patty to a 1/3 pound American Kobe Beef (Wagyu) burger, the mayo to garlic aioli, and the traditional bun with fresh baked Brioche. The criss-cut waffle fries most often appear as Wachos, a re-imagining of nachos with toppings such as guacamole, scallions, and the spicy Green Dragon sauce. This combination of familiar eats and imagination earned a nomination for Los Angeles Hotlist’s 2013 Best Food Truck award—the Lobos Truck team came in third out 43 nominees. The team has also been featured on Fox 11 Good Morning LA and The Carson Daily Show on AMP Radio.


$12 for Two Groupons, Each Good for $10 Worth of Food and Drink at Dogzilla Hot Dogs ($20 Value) 

The Deal

Dogzilla Hot Dogs

The Dogzilla food truck isn’t your average hot dog spot. Proof: even the “plain jane”, a dog topped with classic ingredients like ketchup, mustard, onions and sweet relish, gets a signature touch in the form of a toasted sweet Hawaiian bun. From there, the options grow ever-more adventurous. The all-beef franks boast toppings like yakisoba noodles, furikake seasoning, and jalapeño aioli. Customers can even customize their dog by choosing one of the signature styles, then adding extras such as a fried egg or avocado, or by swapping the traditional frank for a spicy pork sausage or veggie dog.

Street Food Cinema 

Spanning spring through the fall, Street Food Cinema rolls out more than fifty events in eleven different locations over 27 weeks. This showcase highlights the greatest hits of the silver screen and the LA food-truck scene, as well as music from emerging music artists such as The Rebel Light.

When the gates open, guests spread blankets on the grass and pop open coolers. Live bands play until dusk, when crowd-pleasing movies such as Fight Club and The Sandlot light up the big screen.

Meanwhile, a rotating food-truck schedule assembles a diverse curbside lineup, which might include fresh seafood from Cousins Maine Lobster or the gooey delights of The Grilled Cheese Truck. Their events also feature movie-themed games projected on the big screen for audience participation.

Street Food Cinema’s eclectic assemblage of food, music, and films has picked up attention beyond the park’s bounds, snagging mentions on NBC4, We Like LA, and The Washington Post. Other videos of the events in action can be seen here. It’s also become known for its philanthropic work: each year the organization supports several charities.
