Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs and the Waffle Brothers to serve food at the Denver Rescue Mission

It's amazing how things come together sometimes.

We've written a lot about our favorite wiener cart in the city, Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs. We've written about the best street waffle-slangers this side of 16th Street, the Waffle Brothers. We've also written about what it's like to serve food at the Denver Rescue Mission.

Now we can write about all three in one easy serving: Biker Jim's and Waffle Brothers will be serving free food to 300 homeless and low-income people at the Denver Rescue Mission this Thursday.

From noon to 1 p.m. on April 23, the street vendors will be heading inside the Mission's "Jesus Saves" facility at the corner of Park Avenue West and Lawrence Street to serve up $2,550 in "gourmet hot dogs with all the fixings and waffles with delicious toppings of syrup, butter, whip cream, bananas, strawberries and powdered sugar."

It has to do with National Volunteer Week, apparently. The crappy economy has resulted in an 18 percent increase in the number of people showing up to the Mission for food. Big props to Jim and the wafflers John and Rod -- all of whom recently announced a partnership to start up a brick-and-mortar spot -- for giving up the lunch rush to help some folks out.

And maybe it could result in the creation of world's first hot dog on a waffle cart. Yum, anyone?
