Also Spectator article about it all

Food Truck Fever!

So for the past week Hamilton has become big news, why?    …..well Food Trucks! It seems Hamilton has somehow beaten Toronto to the punch on this one.  A couple articles  in the Spectator and now one in the Toronto Star has made it offical, Food Trucks are gonna save Hamilton! No just kidding but the Spectator`s article is a little less hyper than the Toronto Star one but that`s ok cause we love it! I`m super excited to see them around town!

The first is Cupcake Diner, who site right now is fully bombarded and will be for a little bit…. you may want to check out their Twitter Page for now…..http://twitter.com/#!/CupcakeDiner or their Facebook

the next will be Gorilla Cheese, very excited about this, what`s not to love about Grill Cheese at 3am???? (Facebook and Twitter Pages for them) Also the Spectator has a article about these guys too!

Not to mention the AM900 CHML Radio Interview! (they interview both you have to scroll down a bit)

While a old trend in the U S of A, its a new one for Canada so lets act all ignorant and enjoy the new flavour of roadside dinning. (Also maybe for St.Catherines too)

(Also many thanks to the Sausy Lady aka Jennifer Bain for such a nice article about cool people in this cool city.)

We Can Photograph

Sometimes you run into people where they make cool stuff and you can help yourself but want to pass their info around. I recently met Elise Victoria Louise at the Artist Project in Toronto, she takes some cool photos and based on our conversation also makes prints. Her blog is called We Can Photograph, go check it out.
