Food Truck Date #25: Into the Wild

50 food truck dates

I stepped outside into the Oakland sun from within the depths of BART, the Bay Area’s underground transportation system, and turned left and right in search of a food truck parked outside to pick me up. I was a little nervous for the “production” of what was to come, and a little excited. At the time, I didn’t know I was moments away from a date that would constantly make ... read more

Food Truck Date #16: Twice is… Nice?


When’s the last time you went on a first date with someone, lovers, but then didn’t feel enough of “something” to put effort into a second date?

Food Truck Date #13: Interesting.

I grabbed the strap above me on BART as the train shook and rumbled its way under the water from San Francisco to the East Bay.

Food Truck Date #12: Timing is a GD Bitch (Or the Man Who Made Me Dislike Mustaches)

I was merely being facetious about the mustache springing, of course. Sure, I didn’t have any idea until then that’d he’d have a mustache (based on his ... read more
