Tonight: Justice League of Street Food's '80s party

The third Justice League of Street Food party is upon us.

Tonight, in a lot behind the ballpark at 29th and Huron Street, the Deluxe Little Orange Rocket, the Inventing Room, Sully's Slice Truck, the Cupcake Truck, Biker Jim's, Steuben's, the Biscuit Bus, Pinche Tacos, Steamin' Demon and the Gastro Cart will be serving up their regular truck menus in addition to some one-night-only specials, many of which will be tasting-size portions that cost just a buck or two. And as usual, Great Divide Brewing Co will provide the beer.

And this time, the party has an '80s theme, which means the DJ, the Denver Film Society and, hopefully, you, will celebrate the years of Madonna, Molly Ringwald, David Bowie and Risky Business.

So wear your '80s gear, and if you think you've got the best costume of all, be at the DJ booth by 6:30 p.m., where our esteemed panel of judges will choose one decked-out diner who'll get to eat and drink for free for the rest of the event.

The party goes from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.
