Win free food and beer for Saturday's Food Truck Warriors kickoff party!

ftw-poster-750.jpg
Come Saturday at 2 p.m., the parking lot at Ninth and Bannock will morph into a food orgy, when nearly a dozen Denver street-food trucks and carts commune on the pavement to feed a bumper crop of gastronauts, all of whom will be part of the Food Truck Warriors kick-off party. In addition to foodstuffs from Street Eats, the Crock Spot, Biscuit Bus, Steuben's, Max Lunch, Brava Pizzeria, Stick It to Me, The Bon Bon Buggy, Mikes2 Kitchen, Mythos Greek and Sweet Revenge Cupcakes, the soiree, which continues through 9 p.m., will also pimp a beer garden and tap truck from Left Hand Brewing, kids' activities, and DJ music by Ginger Perry and Christine West.

Admission to the food fest is free, but food from the trucks -- and beer from the garden -- isn't, which is where we come in.

We're having a little contest, one that will reward two lucky Cafe Society readers with $25 each in free food and/or beer at the Food Truck Warriors launch party.

Want to win? All you have to do is tell us, in ten words or less, why you deserve to stuff your gullet. We'll announce the two winners on Friday afternoon.

Make sure to leave at least your first name and your e-mail address in the comments section so we can get in touch with you if you're a winner.

I want to win because I would finally be able to have some good Denver fare. As a mama of two, and the provider for a family of four we can't afford to eat out or even get a babysitter to do so. My former life as a foodie and nightlife aficionado is over. But I still yearn for a night out. This would be perfect! HALP!

When I was a young boy, my grandfather would tell me tales of his youth. When he was a young man he had traveled to the Worlds Fair- St. Loius 1904. This was an event like nothing he had ever seen, most notably the wonderfull foods served from carriages. It changed his life. Food served from vehicles became his passion, he traveled everywhere he could to find the one thing in life, we would later learn, that made him happy. His favorite story was from an event in New York City where there were 5 differant food vendors- all serving out of motor cars.

Each meal my grandfather was served, each experience he had with food from trucks became his life. As I've gotten older I've had my share of experiences, but because of the countless hours spent listening to my grandfathers tales, there is still an emptiness- a hole- in my life that I fear may never be filled. The Food Truck Warriors Party could be the event that fills my hole.

And eleven trucks, not even my grandfater could imagine that.

Yep....but something is still going on tomorrow. From FB page:

We've got some good news and some bad news Food Truck Warriors Fans!

Due to the cold, rain and snow that has been forecasted for Saturday, we took precautionary measures and decided to postpone the kickoff party for a few weeks.

THE GOOD NEWS IS...several of the Warriors are still planning to serve up some food tomorrow at the above location from 12-? No beer flowing or DJ's tomorrow, but we'll bring a kickin boom box and you bring your flasks. I think we can still manage to have a great day despite the cold, with yummy food to warm up your bellies!

THE OTHER GOOD NEWS IS... we are in NO WAY canceling the event, merely changing the date. We are just as excited as everyone else to get out and have fun in the sun, so we are planning on kicking off the festivities in a few weeks so we can enjoy delish food, beer and amazing tunes in the sun rather than the cold.

Event details to be posted soon!

Please join us tomorrow for an augmented version of what we had planned.

Rolling with the Denver weather punches!
