Things are finally a brewin’ over here again at 50 Dates after some soul searchin and a brief health & mental break…
- Since I’ve been off Food Truck Datin’ since my Austin trip in June, I’m considering my next Food Truck Date on October 1st not only the commemoration of my 25th date and halfway point, but also an extra special “comeback” date. I’ll be hitting the East Bay with a gent who works for Doc’s of the Bay and Behind the Food Carts will be photographing it! I’m even getting picked up on my date IN the truck, and plan to do a little cookin’ & servin’ on our date. <3 I’m rolling up my sleeves and getting DIRTY, lovers.
- I’ve also been asked to contribute to two books about food trucks! I met Tiffany of Trailer Food Diaries in Austin, and she’s finally making her way to the Bay for a San Francisco edition of her wayyy cool cookbooks. I’ll be hosting her while she’s here in October, and contributing an excerpt to her book in addition to Portland Food Cart Adventures‘ book out next year too! Only hoping I can return the favor someday when I’m finished with this project and writing my own book…
- I’ll possibly be making an appearance on Eat St. Food Network Canada show - they travel North America in search of the best food trucks and have invited me to talk on air about food trucks in SF (they’ll be filming this week and next at some of my favorite local trucks including but not limited to Koja Kitchen, Old World Truck and Adam’s Grub Truck)!
- AND I’m nearing the end of writing my one year recap, which has been quite the haul, but it should be up next week! It’s taken me a bit to process the last year and all that’s happened, but I think I have some great things to share with you. Getting over this little aversion to dating & writing hump also promises posts from the content that’s been sitting in my dusty Food Truck Date brain and needs to be written – dates 17-24, my trip to Austin, and finishing up my trip to Portland. Phew! It’s been incredibly nice to not guilt and stress over this project so much for the last three months, so I’m feeling more than ready to get back on the saddle. Fall IS my favorite season, so it should be a great season to date and snuggle.
Mazel tov, lovers! xo
