Scenes Of The City: Oakland's Eat Real Festival

This weekend we hung out at Oakland's Eat Real Festival, watching thousands gorge on food of all sorts. There were food trucks for miles, offering everything from Tikka Masala burritos to lamb straight off the bone. Enjoy the visuals.

The bacon meatloaf sandwich from PRMC's American Eatery was just one of the many delicious things to eat.

Of course Ritual was there.

Everyone got their fill.

Designed to be a smaller festival than last year, there was still a lot of people at Jack London Square over the weekend, even with a bit of rain on Sunday morning.

Contestants in the Pig Butchery Contest dig into their subjects.

The weather cooperated for the most part over the weekend.

And of course, to finish it off right, you gotta go with a cupcake.
