Mensch of the Month Calendar + Food Truck Dates - 50 Food Truck Dates

Mensch of the Month Calendar + Food Truck Dates

Happy Hump Day, belated Feliz Navidad, hippity hoppity New Years and all that shiz. I took a two-week siesta from the Internet and am back to grab 2013 by the dating balls. I’m mostly excited for all the possibility 50 Food Truck Dates has in the New Year and have a list about a mile long of goals and plans… so woop, there it is.

Before I left for the holidays in Seattle, I was having a little Tweetversation with the ladies behind the Mensch of the Month calendar. Two smart and sassy gals, Dana Hall and Elizabeth Shapiro, started the calendar’s first 2012 edition and chalked it full of single San Franciscan Jewish men they wanted to meet themselves. They also wanted to raise awareness for the SMART program, a nonprofit that provides scholarships for underprivileged youth to attend private middle schools, so all calendar proceeds are donated to SMART.

I LOVE the nonprofit tie in, so buy your calendar! I mean, these guys are CUTE. You don’t have to be Jewish to love the Jews, ladies!

mensch of the month

DefinitionMensch - a Yiddish word that means “a person of integrity.” A person having admirable characteristics, such as fortitude and firmness of purpose.

Not only did I order my own copy of Mensch of the Month for 2013 (duh – nothing is more appropriate than hot Jewish men on your wall at work to stare at all day), but I’m looking forward to working with the girls to set up a date (or five!) with some of the men in the calendar. Possibly even a date with Mr. December himself, Broke-Ass Stuart (one of my 50 Food Truck Dates bucket list men because he’s an awesome blogger and cult personality of SF that I admire and follow online!)

That’s one thing new and currently exciting … oh, I’ll also be launching a new Refer-a-50-Date program where I’ll send you awesome swag if you refer a Food Truck Date that I go on, and I’m meeting up with Alicia from 50/50: A Dating Documentary! Alicia started a project around the same time as I did to travel and date one guy in each of the 50 States. She’s creating a documentary from her experience, and will be doing a guest Food Truck Date too, so bookmark her site and stay tuned!

2013 is going to be BIG, I can feel it in my heart.

    Possibly stupid question: so, by definition, can a Mensch be a woman? Or is it just “understood” (or, I suppose, historical context) always designates as a male?

      I believe that it’s male only based on the Yiddish origin!
