It’s the day after our estimated due date and the wee one isn’t here yet.
With that in mind, we had spicy calzones from Mirchi Cafe & Masala Pizza.
We learned that Mirchi will soon have a foodie truck.
There aren’t many details on the website, but the food will surely be good.

This is good news overall. Anytime you can get certified organic produce gift wrapped for you… thumbs up.
We were, however, a little disappointed with the marketing. The flyers say “Local and organic produce,” but the company is based out of Washington state. The source farms are located in WA and in Mexico.
They ARE certified organic.
So… It’s a nice thing that didn’t need to happen, but it did happen, and that’s enough. Good job Z.
It does reenforce the lesson that one should always investigate.
Remember: Certified Organic is a legally binding term; Local is not.

They have posted a profile on the funding platform website, Kickstarter.
The duo is using, as they put it: “a mish-mash of improvised and used equipment.” The Kickstarter funding will help them to purchase a variety of professional equipment.
Let’s make it happen.
This year, August 4th, the Fremont Festival of the Arts will feature a few foodie trucks near the intersection of State Street & Capitol Ave.
We were near Union Landing, desperately looking for something to eat, something that wouldn’t Fud our delicate Rucker. We were delighted to find Tribu Grill, a small, local chain with two locations.
I had the longganisa with a calamansi slushy to drink. Shelby had the rib-eye salpicao and both were very good. The staff was friendly and, since we ate early, it was quiet.
All and all a much needed oasis from the commercial slop that one is forced to deal with after seeing a movie in that area.
[Also, Paddy's Coffee and the nicer, historic part of town, is closer than you think.]
