Seven Denver-based food trucks, including Quiero Arepas, Pink Tank, Orange Crunch, Hey PB&J, Big Kiwi's Gourmet Eats, El Toro the Tot and Street Eats 5280, are getting their fifteen minutes of fame this week and next as filming crews from Eat St., a meals-on-wheels show hosted by James Cunningham that bills itself as a "lip-smacking celebration of North America's tastiest, messiest and most irresistible street food," descend upon the Mile High City to shoot the trucks -- and the food they serve -- for an upcoming segment.
The shoots, which began yesterday with Quiero Arepas, the Venezuelan food truck operated by Igor and Beckie Panasewicz, continue through Tuesday, September 12 at various locations throughout the city -- and street-food zealots are encouraged to attend (you might even get your mug on camera).
