Every season I organize a trip for a bunch of Ducks fans to watch the team play at an NHL city. This year, we picked Denver. There’s a total of 25 of us, but 19 took the 6:45am flight from Long Beach. After checking into the Magnolia hotel, everyone was free to do their own thing.

On Friday, Karen and I went to the Artist Walk to find mobile food cuisine.
At 4:00 pm, we took bus number 1 and located @QuieroArepas, which features Venezuelan cuisine. Their truck was not ready, and they were selling at the indoor Farmers Market at 200 Santa Fe Avenue. We had two arepas: one with stewed shredded beef, black beans, plantains & cheese, and one with just plantains and cheese.
We continued our quest and walked from 2nd Street all the way to 8th Street and found @CrockSpot,@StickFood, & @iKneadPizza.
At Crock Spot, you pick a grain, protein and sauce. The one featured in this blog has pearl barley, jalapeno beef, and a chipotle / chimichurri sauce.
At Stick Food, we picked up waffle with nutella, angus beef & chicken, and mashed potato balls.
Lastly at Basic Kneads, we picked up a Margharita and a Sausage and Rosemary pizza. Denver’s food truck scene is starting to bloom. They have a long way to go, and I hope the community embraces it.
We took a taxi from the Art Walk back to the hotel. One nice feature of our hotel was the complementary cookies and milk from 8:00-10:00 pm. It was a great way to end an evening.
