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.

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.

Baba's Falafel takes to the street with fried vegan goodness

Falafel is like fried chicken for non-meat-eaters. It's crunchy and flavorful and filling. And there are many, many different ways to serve it.

Dalia Hannah and Chris Hernandez are experimenting with as many of those ways as possible in their new food truck, Baba's Falafel, which took to the streets in October. They plan to keep it running all winter, and all in the name of falafel.

Pizzeria, Stick It To Me, Mythos Greek, the Biscuit Bus, and more.

The correct answer is 2,416 pounds, and the person who came the closest without going over (yes, that was our rule), is...

It appeared that Saturday's downpour would dampen the first Justice League soiree of the season, but at the last minute, Mother Nature cooperated, and right before the ticker struck 6 p.m., the clouds sailed off into the sunset, giving way to a sky of cobalt blue, making the League's spring kick-off pavement party one of the best blowout food orgies of the year.

Drum roll: Announcing the winner of our Justice League contest

Thumbnail image for Justiceleage2012.jpg

On Saturday night, the season's first Justice League of Street Food party will take over the pavement at TAXI, and earlier this week, we held a contest, giving one Cafe Society reader the opportunity to eat and drink for free.

Ten trucks will be at the bash, including Manna from Heaven, the Vietnamese food truck that slings some of the best bánh mì in Denver. And we asked readers to correctly answer a question about Manna from Heaven: How many bánh mì did the truck serve between May 1 and May 13?

We got low answers and we got high answers, but no one nailed it on the head. Still, one reader came the closest without going over. And that person is...

Follow That Cart
Someday, Patrick Creager and his wife, Ari Murdock, would like to open up a soda fountain. "I love the concept of a modern soda shop," he explains. "I really delved in behind the bar at Olivea, and I found ways to incorporate fruits and vegetables and spices and herbs with sugar as a medium. Then I turned them into sodas."
