Hooray for the Food Trucks!

Thanks to the West Seattle Blog for the article and pictures of the food trucks’ first day at HPIC. We were so busy eating ginger pork lumpia and curry chicken tacos and talking with friends and neighbors and other happy customers, we forgot to take pictures!

There was a steady stream of customers from the opening at 11am till closing at 3pm, and the proprietors of both Lumpia World and Curry Now said they had a good day. Derrick of Lumpia World envisions an on-going pod of several food trucks in our parking lot, and we think the neighborhood and folks from all around will love it!

They plan to be at HPIC regularly on Saturdays, so come out and support good food in the neighborhood, and have yourself a tasty meal. There are sheltered tables and chairs, and a very good chance of running into friends.

Then, at 6pm, the Highland Park Harvest Dinner begins. Help initiate another new tradition at HPIC and celebrate a harvest meal with friends and neighbors.

Bring a home-made dish to share that celebrates our local harvest, plus a dinner plate to leave behind for HPIC’s community kitchen.

There will be entertainment and a no-host bar.

Bootcamp/Fitness Class – free demo Tues Aug 9 – 7pm

Check out the Bootcamp/Fitness Class free demonstration (Tues Aug 9, 7pm) for a series that neighbor and personal trainer Sarah Swanson plans to offer.

Sarah says, “I’d love to do a class where moms or dads could bring their kids with them if they wanted.  My idea is to start a morning class series Tues/Wed/Thurs somewhere between a 6:30 or 7:30 start time with an emphasis of resistance type training without a lot of equipment on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Wednesday being more of a cardio bootcamp day/ and recovery stretching.  A class I would offer would not be limited to active or “fit” individuals, but anyone wanting to improve themselves.”
