Bay Meadows Presents Red Hot Roundup on October 16th


As Bay Meadows grows into one of the region’s hottest new places to live, work and play, the urban village presents a night that will turn up the heat. Red Hot Roundup on Thursday, October 16th, 5:00pm-8:30pm is a block party featuring popular food trucks dishing up their spiciest fare. The fun includes a spicy food-eating contest, DJs, lawn-games and demos from the San Mateo Fire Department. Interested revelers will get a sneak-peek into Field House, Bay Meadows’ brand new apartments, which begin leasing in October.

The action all takes place at Paddock Park at Baze Road and Derby Avenue, near the Hillsdale Caltrain stop in San Mateo. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door, with half of the proceeds benefiting AARBF, a burn prevention and education charity championed by the San Mateo Fire Department. Kids under 12 get in for free. Those who purchase tickets in advance will be entered to win a red hot PUBLIC Bike. A limited number of tickets for the spicy food-eating contest is available for $20.

Those who dare enter the “Beat the Heat Hellfire Challenge” (eating contest) can fight for bragging rights as they light their taste-buds on fire against San Mateo’s own firefighters. One lucky winner will receive a weekend getaway to Calistoga’s Hot Springs.
Heat up with some of your favorite food trucks, including: Curry Up Now, Red Sauce Meatballs; Bacon Bacon; The Rib Whip; Smothered In Sauce; Naked Chorizo; and Little Green Cyclo. Then cool down with Skylite Snowballs and Frozen Kuhsterd. Wash it all down with a refreshing bevvy at the Popup Beer and Wine Garden provided by San Mateo’s own Grape and Grain. Special props to popular condiment maker and event sponsor Dave’s Hot Sauce.

Life in Motion
Bay Meadows was designed to give homeowners the luxury of pulling into their driveway on Friday evening and not have to drive again for the weekend. Whether they need groceries, want to enjoy a picnic in a gorgeous 12-acre park, plant heirloom tomatoes in the community garden, or hop on a train for a night out in San Francisco, residents can do it all car-free. They are also able to wake Monday morning and walk down the block to catch a train to an office in Silicon Valley, San Francisco or any destination served by Caltrain. Or, they can walk to work at the adjacent LEED-certified office buildings. Bay Meadows truly brings the concept of a “forwardly mobile” lifestyle to the Bay Area.
The Bay Meadows’ plan includes more than 1,100 units of housing, 1.5 million square feet of LEED-certified office space and 18 acres of parks. The community’s Delaware Street is envisioned as a social hub, an intersection of work and play that inspires spontaneity and interaction. This urban village represents the new downtown-style and environmentally friendly living that residents and workers increasingly seek. For more information, visit
