This week, we are adding First Bite Gourmet to our schedule. First Bite gives a “first bite” portion of the cost of every meal to feed the homeless. According to one of the owners, Marie Jackson, First Bite brings an “eclectic fusion of flavors, beginning with our marinated and rubbed carne asada(grilled meat). Everything from grilled sourdough sandwhiches, to double meat burgers, and street tacos”.
Ssahm BBQ turned in one of their leased trucks, so they are down to one.
With that, here is your schedule for the week. Remember to check Facebook and Twitter feeds before venturing out. Jump…[table “27” not found /]
