Win Tickets to Eat Mobile 2012


Here’s your chance at 2 GA tickets to Eat Mobile 2012. The premier food cart tasting event sponsored by Willamette Week and benefiting Mercy Corp Northwest will occur at OMSI on April 28 from 6-9:30pm. At Eat Mobile, you’ll be able to sample from 50 different Portland street food vendors while enjoying some live music and cooking demonstrations. I understand Kevin Sandri from Garden State will be doing something special.

Willamette Week has passed on a pair of tickets for one lucky Food Carts Portland reader. Just leave a comment telling us which cart you’re looking forward to sampling from and we’ll randomly pick one lucky winner by the end of Sunday, April 22. Good luck!

    Any of the taco ones. I love spending three dollars and getting a tummy full of asada goodness! mmm or the waffles… you can never go wrong with waffle.

  6. I’m hoping we’ll see some nice weather, but mostly, I’m looking forward to snarfing some FlavourSpot — I rarely make it out to any of their carts during working hours, and their waffles are probably the best in Portland.

  33. EuroTrash and Pie Spot, can’t decide between those two.

  41. Karen Haggerty says:

    Can’t wait to see what Kevin Sandri has in store. Garden State has been terribly missed and his attendance makes this event a must!

Unless you’re the type to do dessert first :o) Opps, but then their is one I’ve not heard of KURE Juice Bar… Acai Bowls???? Got to try that!Hmmmm, so hard to choose which one to go to first…
