Gourmet on Gore kicks off with food truck bash
Vail’s quintessential Labor Day event and official kick off to fall, Gourmet on Gore, returns this year. This time with a new kickoff event, on Friday, Aug. 30: Food Trucks Al Fresco.
Bringing together some of the state’s best-loved food trucks to East Meadow Drive in Vail Village, this new evening event will allow attendees to enjoy distinctive dishes from a variety of cuisines. This open-air dining experience will feature six to eight curated food trucks, creative cocktails, beer and hand-picked wines and live music from the all-female, electronic string quartet, Spinphony.
“Gourmet on Gore is one of our favorite events of the year and we always want to keep it fresh,” said Peggy Wolfe, director of events for Highline. “This year, we wanted to bring a bit of urban flair to the weekend and food trucks are a fun and tasty way to do that.”
The lineup of food trucks so far includes Roll It Up Sushi, Colorado Q (barbecue) and Harvest / the Sonnenalp Club. More will be announced closer to the event.
Spinphony is known for breaking down barriers between classical, rock and pop music. Mixing and mashing catchy melodies into unique arrangements and original compositions, the high-energy quartet is more like a rock band with added choreography and beats from a DJ.
Food Trucks Al Fresco is not ticketed and is open to the public. For details and the full schedule of events, visit http://www.gourmetongore.com.
Mountainfilm On Tour brings 10 documentary shorts, focusing on equity, to two local high schools and two local movie theaters. “Brotherhood Of Skiing,” for example, is about African Americans who love skiing and want to pass that love to the next generation.
