You may have heard this one before: an unused space converted into a hangout spot for the community, packed with food trucks and picnic tables. It's not a new concept, but Mission Bay's Spark Social takes it to the next level. Here you can gather your crew and reserve a fire pit — complete with comfy Adirondack chairs and s'mores fixings for some nostalgic snacking. The fire-pit areas each fit 10 to 20 people, or you can book a picnic table for groups of up to 25. Food trucks serve up everything from Salvadoran pupusas to Hawaiian poke bowls, with beer and wine (plus tasty nonalcoholic libations like Thai iced tea) rounding out the offerings. Spark up a new social ritual in 2017.
