The rain put a damper on the start of Civic Center Eats, but now the regular gathering of food trucks at Civic Center Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday is really rolling. In fact, when they were recently in town to film scenes for Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajak and Vanna White stopped by to grab lunch. (And thanks to Jon Blakely, who grabbed this shot.) We can't promise that Vanna will be there today, but you'll definitely find food and live entertainment; find out more here.
Warm cookies and hot soup could be the key to changing our community for the better.
And you'll want to return to Civic Center Park tonight when Warm Cookies of the Revolution and the Sabrina Merage Foundation present Soups and Dreams, which will fill the McNichols Building with food, art, culture and causes from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Guests can sip a variety of soups from around the world while listening to poetry and music from El Mariachi Juvenil de Bryant Webster, The Pink Hawks and poet Bobby LeFebre. Four local charities will “pitch” the work of other charity organizations so that you can learn a multitude of ways to celebrate, respect and encourage diversity in our community. There's an $8 suggested donation; all donations will be distributed between the charities you hear about. RSVP and learn more here.
