FREE Food Truck Book Release Party

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

If you see a food truck serving something crazily delicious, because you may never it see again after the truck drives off for the night. leaving you wondering what those edamame dumplings with lemon dipping sauce could’ve been. (My theory: fucking delicious).

Heather Shouse didn’t let any food truck get away from her. Instead, she traveled around the country, looking for the most delicious foods being prepared in four-wheeled structures. She compiled stories and recipes from the makers of kimchi quesadillas, crepes and Vietnamese sandwiches fore her book Food Trucks: Dispatches and Recipes From the Best Kitchens on Wheels. Tomorrow night, she’s bringing her book release tour to Spoonbill and Sugartown, with Brooklyn Brewery Beer and cheap snacks from Endless Summer. Wednesday, she’ll be continuing the party at the Strand and facilitating a panel discussion with owners of some of the city’s most popular food trucks. Copies of the book will be on hand, and try not to drool on the pictures unless you intend to buy.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
