Street art

11 November, 2008: I saw this sticker in Central. Great hunh? I’ve really got to figure out our logo. It’s not going to look anything like this, but I hope it has some of the originality that draws me to this sticker. Read More

Deliberate randomness

11 November, 2008: John Hong worked hard to make what he called a “deliberately random” pattern with the lights on the roof. It looks great doesn’t it? Sort of like a ripple running through water. We haven’t served at night yet, so most of you haven’t seen this. Thought I’d share. I enjoy it every night. Read More

Tomatoes

10 November, 2008: We need to start posting more frequently about our ingredients. We’re really excited about the food we’re able to bring you, and it’s time to start to highlight some of the ingredients. Our sandwich tomatoes (sliced tomatoes) are “Tasty Toms.” They come from Maine, and they are really just the very best tasting off season tomatoes you… Read More

Choosing day menu

5 November, 2008: We sold out of everything. I mean everything. I ladled out the last cup of cider, and that was it. We opened at noon, and were out by 1:30pm. Tomorrow you can look forward to a mushroom soup. We’ll be bringing back the herbed fries, and black bean soup. And we’re thinking of unveiling a new sandwich:… Read More

Order system

5 November, 2008: We thought we’d try a new system to track orders. It didn’t really work. I had to reach across the workspace too often, and the buttons got confused. The idea was to move magnets across the board you see in the picture. We’ll keep trying. Read More

Wacky bumper sticker

5 November, 2008: Driving to Nuestra I was passed by a car with this bumper sticker. I checked out the website, looks like wacky new age stuff. But it’s interesting to see the message (what we eat has a huge impact on the planet) show up in new places. Read More

Clover Menu 11-3-08

3 November, 2008: Today’s menu before we ran out/ low. It was a good, if short, day. Again, we doubled our traffic. We also showed up at the latest hour yet (12:20pm first service) and left earlier than ever (1:45pm). I’d love to say this is because we ran out of everything, but really we just needed to get down… Read More

Scariest costume I could come up with

31 October, 2008: You might not all know this, but I have a full Burger King outfit hanging in my closet. Hat, Shirt, Pants. Left over from my short stint at Burger King Winchester. I thought it would be the perfect scary Halloween costume this year. That’s Blue in my arms and Clem hanging out behind us. Read More

Day 2

30 October, 2008: Second day at the truck. Far from perfect, but much much smoother. The bread still isn’t right, but we’re thrilled with the number of repeat customers. Numbers have doubled from yesterday. Feedback is great. We’re seeing what people like and don’t like. It’s great. On one hand things are crazy, we’re pulling 20 hour days and still… Read More

First day

29 October, 2008: It’s on. Here’s a picture from our first day. That’s Mike behind me, a student of Rolando’s from Providence. He and a classmate took an entire day off to help us out. It was still crazy, but we got food out the window and learned a ton. At the end of the day we tore the entire… Read More
