Peter’s Kettle Corn @ Off The Grid 2012!

29 Feb

Join us opening day at Off the Grid Fort Mason on Friday, March 23rd, 2012.

Off The Grid, founded by Matt Cohen was established in June 2010 and has become a sweeping phenomenon for foodies world wide! Off the Grid “believes in the power of a shared food experience to connect communities, and …work[s] hard to maintain a shared sense of space wherever.” We believe in and support the philosophy that helped create Off the Grid. We were fortunate enough to participate in the food movement at Off The Grid – Fort Mason 2011 and are happy to be returning in 2012.

We had a great time last year where Peter’s Kettle Corn served our fun, original flavors: Horchata, Strawberry and Chipotle Lime Kettle Corn. So, what flavors do we have in store for you this year?

We have been working hard to bring you new and creative flavors that are guaranteed to satisfy all taste-buds! Recently, we successfully debuted some new flavors at the opening of SF’s Beer Week: Elote, and Tamarind Spiced Mango!

Although both flavors sold out, Tamarind Spiced Mango was definitely the favorite of the night! As such, we are delighted to serve our Tamarind Spiced Mango flavored kettle corn opening day, March 23rd at OTG Fort Mason! Be sure to come by our booth and try a free sample or keep yourself warm with a sweet treat in a Peter’s Kettle Corn bag!

Warren Hellman Memorial Concert- Ocean Beach, SF

15 Feb

ImagePeter’s Kettle Corn is proud to be participating in the Warren Hellman Memorial Concert on February 19th, 2012 to celebrate the life of one of San Francisco’s greatest Civic Leader, Warren Hellman. The event will be held at Ocean Beach (On the Great Highway (Hwy 1) between JFK Dr. & Lincoln Ave.)

Warren Hellman passed away late last year at the age of 77. He was a successful businessman who devoted the latter of his life to the belief of free music to the people. He funded the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival almost completely out of his own pocket every year since 2001, calling it his “selfish gift” to the city.

“What does move me is Philanthropic stuff…”- Warren Hellman

We, at Peter’s Kettle Corn, believe in the spirit of giving and are inspired by Warren Hellman’s generosity. Please join us in celebrating Warren Hellman’s life and enjoy one of his greatest gifts to the City.
