Before Kassia Koukari parks Roberto, the three-wheeled delivery bike for Kassia's Pasta Farm, for the season, she wheeled him to the Infinite Monkey Theorem on Thursday night for the kickoff of Operation: Turkey Raisin', a food/fundraiser for Denver Rescue Mission's Thanksgiving Turkey Drive. Through November 23, a portion of all Kassia's Pasta Farm's sales will be donated to the cause -- and customers who donate a can of food will get a dollar off a pasta dish.

El Toro the Tot is one of several Denver food trucks that will appear in an upcoming Eat St. segment.

Seven Denver-based food trucks, including Quiero Arepas, Pink Tank, Orange Crunch, Hey PB&J, Big Kiwi's Gourmet Eats, El Toro the Tot and Street Eats 5280, are getting their fifteen minutes of fame this week and next as filming crews from Eat St., a meals-on-wheels show hosted by James Cunningham that bills itself as a "lip-smacking celebration of North America's tastiest, messiest and most irresistible street food," descend upon the Mile High City to shoot the trucks -- and the food they serve -- for an upcoming segment.

Last week, when I interviewed Delores Tronco about the end to the Justice League of Street Food -- and the group's pavement parties that pioneered Denver's mobile food movement, the last of which took place on Saturday -- the initial organizer of those gatherings had this to say: "We hope that someone else will pick up the reins and bring another great series of food truck parties to life, but since this is the last Justice League party ever, we hope that we'll be able to go out with a bang."

After one last bash, the Justice League of Street Food will end the party

theend.jpg
August 3 marks the finale for the Justice League of Steet Food.

Judging from the notes of woe on the Justice League of Street Food's Facebook page, where it was announced earlier today that the coalition's food truck parties will come to an end on August 3, there are an awful lot of saddened loyalists. "What a downer," wrote one disheartened fan. "What. The. Fuck." wrote another. "Why stop a good thing?" wondered someone else.

Waffle Up delivers a taste of Belgium with Liege waffles. Sweet!

Categories: Food Trucks

WaffleUp.jpg
Denver's food-truck scene already offered just about every type of cuisine that you can imagine when Tom McCarty and Jasmine Spoonemore thought they'd come up with an opening large enough to, well, drive a truck through. And in April, McCarty and Spoonemore debuted Waffle Up, where they create Liège waffles hot off the heavy-cast iron and served with your choice of toppings.

Pride of Philly hits the streets of Denver with authentic cheesesteaks

Categories: Food Trucks

PoP1.jpg
From Pride of Philly's Facebook page.
Born into a family that owned a deli in Philadelphia, Jason Delp knew exactly what a true cheesesteak tasted like -- and when he moved to Denver, he couldn't find one. "I wanted people to experience cheesesteak the way that I had it growing up -- made with ribeye and smothered in Cheez Whiz and sautéed onions," Delp explains. So he finally took matters into his own hands, and left the corporate world to start his own food truck, Pride of Philly.

Categories: Food Trucks

ECJoes.jpg
East Coast Joe's is on a roll in Denver.
After owning two restaurants and a nightclub in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Joseph Gerace was burned out and ready to take his cooking in a new direction. So he packed his bags and moved to Denver, where he and Alli Evans bought a 1961 Ford Grumman that they turned into East Coast Joe's, their own restaurant on wheels.

Pink Tank is the party bus of food trucks -- but with a family focus

Categories: Food Trucks

Pink Tank
Pink Tank brings more than food to Denver's food-truck scene.
A few years ago, Pink Tank's David Mueller was working sales, doing well and able to pay all of his bills -- but he wasn't satisfied. "I was really unhappy not spending time with my family, so I decided to get out of sales and start a business," he explains. "I wasn't sure what, but I wanted to set my own hours, and I decided to chase the dream, do what I love, and sacrifice money for happiness."

That dream turned out to be a gourmet food truck -- and after convincing his wife, Lisa, to chase it with him, they sold their other business and bought an old bread truck.
