Sebastopol's Street of Eats 

The Barlow kicks off weekly street fair

If you need an excuse to get an early jump on the weekend, the Barlow's Thursday night Street Fair is a good one.

The Barlow, Sebastopol's quadrant of retail shops, winetasting rooms, breweries and restaurants, debuted the Street Fair last week, and it was a hit. Granted, people were already amassing in advance of the fireworks display at nearby Analy High School, but I'm guessing the crowds will be back every week because of the sheer quantity of good food and drink available.

I counted about 20 food vendors hawking everything from paella to oysters and pizza to Thai food. The streets are blocked off to cars, and dining tables are set up. In addition to scores of food tents, local artists and vendors have a presence at the fair while Barlow-based wineries and restaurants open their doors to the multitudes, too. Live music adds to the street-party vibe.

"I have no reason to go home," said well-sated fairgoer.

The Barlow Street Fair runs 4–8 pm every Thursday through October 30.
