Off The Grid -- Dogs Allowed?

I'm thinking about heading to the Haight Off The Grid tonight and am wondering if they allow dogs there? Does anyone know if this is the case? Thanks in advance!

  1. I remember dogs tied up outside the circle of trucks at Ft Mason, but I don't recall any in food lines.

      I don't remember seeing any dogs either. The night I was there it was quite crowded in the circle of trucks at times, so it may not be so much fun for a dog unless you can find a quiet spot.

    2. We had our dog there at the last one - both in the food lines, at the seating area.

        I guess my earlier reply was too ranty. Sorry. Non-service dogs are not allowed within 20 feet of where food is served or sold. So not allowed at off the grid. Ditto for farmers' markets.

          That seems strange. So i can't walk past a taco truck parked along a sidewalk? Or past a takeout window?

          Anyway, lots of non service dogs were in and around the last "off the grid" if it's legal or not.

            I can't speak to the particulars of taco trucks and take-out windows, but OTG at Fort Mason,FPFM, and small FM's on the street are all posted "No Pets " at the entrance. Nonetheless one sees pets. I would advise first attending the venue without pet and checking earnestly the postings. As far as "if it's legal or not" OP was enquiring what was the rule, not what one could get away with.
