After LaLi Kates of Aunt LaLi’s Mobile Cafe formed the business Food Trucks A Go Go last year, she launched a monthly food truck event at Scotts Valley’s Skypark. The community response was even better than she had imagined, and she was soon organizing a variety of events, sometimes on Friday nights and sometimes during Sunday brunch.

“We are so excited to be launching these new locations and present the unique and delicious food from our local food trucks,” shared Kates. “The food trucks will rotate to offer a variety of food options at each of the locations.”

At the end of this week, on Friday July 29, Food Trucks A Go Go is partnering with Event Santa Cruz for “Summer Nights & Edible Delights” 5-9 p.m. at the Delaware Addition. Admission is $3. The line-up includes: Holopono, Ate3One, G’s Tacos, Saucey’z, Conscious Creations, Humble Sea Brewing Company and Stockwell Cellars.

Event Santa Cruz is partnering with Visit Santa Cruz County for “This is How We Cruz” on Wednesday, June 8 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The event, which will include lots of local food and drinks, will be at the Rio Theatre (1205 Soquel Ave) and is highlighting some of our area’s local people, places, projects and businesses.

Scheduled presenters are from a variety of industries and will focus on the county’s local beer, food and sports scenes. There will be a mix of food and drinks to purchase and to sample. Tickets are $10 and going fast; purchase online. During the first hour, people can mingle and enjoy refreshments, and speakers begin at 7.

Event participants include the following (some of these are presenters; others are vendors):
• Bubb Rader, Berdels

I spoke to Becky Potter, Pure Heart Chocolate founder, about her involvement with the event. “I am excited to be part of the vibrant food/artisan culture that is happening here in Santa Cruz, and I think Wednesday night is going to be an awesome example of this,” she shared. “People can expect to see some of their favorite local entrepreneurs, and also have the opportunity to discover newer small businesses, like mine.” Potter will be giving away free samples of raw vegan chocolate and selling boxes of her delicious treats.

Another highlight? Event organizers announced that attendees will be the first to experience Visit Santa Cruz County’s new video series that profiles “a few dynamic businesses and the people behind them.”
