It got pretty chilly when the sun went down. Tacos were very good - fish, shrimp & steak. $2 each or $1.5 for steak & chicken. Each were pretty filling since it had a slice of avocado & a dollop of rice. The random rain that visited only lasted about 5 minutes. Bathrooms are behind the screen to the door on the right, after going up the walk ramp. Dog friendly. People & crew were nice. They started on time at 9pm.

“Brainwash* has a great mix of original humor, experimental art movies, innovative animation, and short live-action stories with high production values, and some new surprises in 2012,” notes 2011 festival judge Jason Gohlke. “The moviemakers are unique and skillful storytellers. You don’t want to miss Brainwash this year.”
This year the festival returns to 1357 5th St (Mandela Village Arts Center), which means intrepid moviegoers can drive in, bike in, walk in, or take BART in to the festival. The movies will be projected on an outdoor screen, and the soundtrack will be available through your FM stereo (as well as played on amplifiers). “It’s a lot of fun, or my name isn’t Shelby Toland,” claims Toland. “Also, bring your favorite chair!”
