Between the Polar Vortex, a little mechanical issue and a long planned & much needed vacation – January was a cruel month for the Amy’s Truck. But we are very happy to let everyone know that we are back to our regular schedule.  We’ve missed everyone and want to thank you all for your patience the past few weeks.

Our first day back serving will be February 4th behind City Hall on Court St 11:30-1:30.

Cross In the Park 11/3/2013

Alright folks it’s that time of year again!  You know the time – baseball is over, our beloved Buffalo sports teams (both the Sabres and Bills) are iffy at best and continue to give us a false sense of hope game after game, Halloween and all its parties are over yet Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away and the craziness of the holiday season is just far enough off that it seems like we have all the time in the world to get ready.

We have the perfect plan for you this Sunday (November 3rd) – come out, watch, support and cheer for everyone at the Campus WheelWorks  Cross in the Park 2013!

For all you bikers out there, this is a 2900 meter,  USA Cycling Sanctioned CX race through Delaware Park.  This is happening rain OR shine so bring your bike and your helmet (you can’t compete without one) and be ready.  Pre-registration is $25 and $30 the day of.  The start and finish in right near the stone bridge (near the Shakespeare  in the Park stage) and is be a great way to start November and finish off the weekend

The races are staggered with the first one start promptly at  10AM. For more information about the event you can click here or call Campus at 716-881-3613

We hope to see you there!   We were there last year – and the crowd  and the bikers are a blast! Everyone has a great time.

Truck or Treat – the Last Food Truck Tuesday of 2013 at Larkin Square

It has finally come to an end.  This Tuesday (October 29) is Larkin Square’s final Food Truck Tuesday of 2013 .  It is sad , but it’s been an amazing season for everyone,  the trucks  and customers, who came down to grab something to eat and explore a revitalized part of the city.  We hope you can come out this week because, without a doubt,  it’s going to be a spectacular night.

In honor of Halloween everyone is encouraged to dress up in costume (you’ll get a $1 off your drink from the trucks)! Make sure the kids bring a bag or pillow case or bucket – any kind of candy carrying vessel – because they are all welcome to go truck to truck TRICK OR TREATING!

And finally (and this is off the charts cool) the amazing Grateful Dead cover band Workingman’s Dead is going to perform! But this is not just a typical show, they will be playing the Dead’s set from their 1990 show at Rich Stadium!  None of the traffic hassle with trying to get to the stadium, no stress waiting  for A Miracle, no sadness in realizing that you just saw one of the last shows Brent Mydland ever played (he died 10 days after the Buffalo show) just all of the amazing music from that magical Summer night!

The night’s party starts at 5 and we’ll be serving until the party stops at 8.

This is going to be so incredible you’ll kick yourself if you don’t go!  A couple hours in the cold wouldn’t be unbearable. It ends at 8PM so you can’t say you don’t want to be out late!  Come out, enjoy the last little bit of your summer routine! Hear some spectacular music! Eat delicious food (and pick something up for lunch on Wednesday)! It’s a perfect way to spend the last Tuesday of October 2013.

Slyfest 8: Urban Edtion – September 21

Saturday September 21 and Sunday September 22 is the ultimate Buffalo festival –  Slyfest 8: Urban Edition!  Slyfest is a Griffin Brady’s brainchild and a major part of  The Slyboots School of Music, Art & Dance

This is the first time that Slyfest has been held in Buffalo and it’s going to kick-ass!  Started originally in Fredonia (seven years ago), Slyfest moved to Warsaw, NY and then to the Griffis Sculpture Park before settling into its new home in Buffalo.

Slyfest 8 is going to be held at The Yard at Rock Harbor in Black Rock.  Admission is $10 and all proceeds go to help Slyboots relocate permanently to Buffalo.

We’ll be there and serving on Sunday (Sept 22) only and it’s going to be a blast!  Make sure to ride your bike!  It’s great exercise, finding parking sucks, you’ll look cool and if you use the GO Buffalo Bike valet…. your FIRST BEER IS FREE!
