There are tons of deviations this weekend to tear you away from the comfort of your couch (and the Olympics), including the Justice League of Street Food party, which hits the pavement tomorrow beginning at 5 p.m. at Sustainability Park, located at 25th and Arapahoe.
And in keeping with the Olympic theme, this Justice League bash is deemed "Summer Games 2012," and while you won't win a gold medal, there will be plenty of "Minute to Win It" games for both kids and adults, with prizes attached. "Along with all the great food, beer from Avery, $2 shots all night and margaritas, we also plan to have a bunch of short, simple games, like bouncing ping-pong balls into cups and a cupcake eating contest and scavenger hunt for kids, which should be a fun twist," says Delores Tronco, co-founder of the Justice League.
The shindig, which benefits Greenleaf, a local nonprofit that teaches kids about urban farming and grows produce for low-income families, includes eats and treats from Biker Jim's, Fat Sully's, Biscuit Bus, Steuben's, Cupcake Truck, Stick it to Me, Quiero Arepas, Pinche Tacos and guest trucks AikoPops, Manna from Heaven and Captain Crabby. And there are two happy hours, as well, from 5 to 6 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m., where beers are $1 off.
But you and a guest can eat and drink for free.
Here's what we want to know: How many Electric Kool-Aid shots were poured at the last Justice League party?
The Cafe Society commenter who comes the closest without going over will win. We'll announce the winner by 5 p.m. tonight.
