Another August, another SF Chefs. The lively Union Square food extravaganza just wrapped up another successful round, and the local food industry is, as we speak, about 75% drag-ass hungover. Since launching in 2009, the festival has grown in scope, with this year including months of buildup with a series of event dinners dubbed The Dinner Party Project. (See our coverage of the Stars reunion dinner here, by way of example.) But the main event was the Grand Tasting Tent, which came in four shifts between Friday night and Sunday afternoon.

The event Friday was lively, with its typical cocktail-heavy selection of treats, while Saturday night's tent was more crowded and hot, though not as unpleasantly packed as it got last year. Attendance Sunday afternoon was a bit lighter overall, but a good and boozy time was clearly had by all.

Please enjoy some photos of highlights from the festivities, including Saturday night's afterparty at the Clift. We might just have to go take a nap.
