It was a sad day when I heard that Eastlake's Tako Truk would be closing its doors, such as they were. Tako Truk operated after hours out of 14 Carrot's kitchen and served curbside some really inventive tacos like the Coco Piggy (pork belly and slaw), Beef and Fries (brisket and tiny shoestring fries) and Channaloo (chickpea and potato curry). Courtesy of Seattle Magazine online I just read that they are making another appearance on Saturday as a benefit for Haiti, and more specifically to raise money for the purchase of relief kits from ShelterBox.org.
I first heard about ShelterBox when friends from BUILD LLC and Picnic came together in early February to do much the same at the latter's fabulous food and wine boutique in Phinney, where a portion of proceeds from the weekly wine tasting when straight to fund ShelterBoxes sent to Haiti. If you're not familiar with the organization, check out the website because they provide an amazing set of relief supplies in a single package.
If you didn't make it to Picnic, be sure not to miss out on another opportunity raise money for much-needed support in Haiti.
