Get your stretchy pants ready - a mini mobile truck festival is this Saturday.
D.I.N.E. - which stands for Delicious Infield Nosh Extravaganza - will be a smaller festival than its sibling festival the Moveable Feast, which was a Cheney Stadium gathering in July of about 30 food trucks.
D.I.N.E. is a ticketed event - $10 buys you admission (plus the cost of food and beer). The festival will take place in the infield at Cheney, limiting attendance to 2,000. Hours are 5-10 p.m.
Organizer Alyson Jones, who created Moveable Feast with Celebrity Cake Studio owner Odette D’Aniello, said there will be six food trucks at D.I.N.E. - South Sound trucks Celebrity Cake Studio Cakemobile, Choripan, Lumpia World and Burrito Boy. Seattle trucks Maximums/Minimus - the truck shaped like a giant pig - and Where You At, Matt? also will serve. Jones said five breweries serving $5 craft beers - Full Sail, Pyramid, Ninkasi, Harmon and Deschutes - and three live bands will play - Rikk Beatty Band, Matt Brown and Footrace Fiasco.
What about Moveable Feast II? The date has been set - July 28, 2013. Jones intends D.I.N.E. also to be an annual event.
