Crunch Time

Travis and I have been working our fingers to the bone for 2 straight weeks to get this cart finished for the big reveal. We have come a LONG way and we're almost ready for the final touches!  No rest for the weary....

Kent, our electrician, gets everything dialed in.

Drilling holes in everything to wire the cart

Travis gets acquainted with a new toy...

This may not look like a big deal to you, but trust me, it's a HUGE deal to us!

Electricity was the last MAJOR thing we needed done on the INSIDE of the cart before we tackle the outside.  The outside of this cart is another story completely.  It has never been the prettiest thing, but we honestly have never even sprayed it down with water in the months we've been working on it.  It mostly stays under a tarp (damn rain!) and we work away on the inside.  That being said, adding a coat of paint to this thing is going to be AMAZING!  I have enlisted the help of my amazing and talented friend, Hussein Al-Baiaty to transform this thing into a masterpiece...

In preparation, I spent my weekend SCRAPING the goo off the outside of the cart..


And patching the outside so it's ready for PAINT!!

We have planned a block party outside of Wieden+Kennedy this Wednesday June 22nd from 8am-4pm.  I hope you can come and check it out!  There will also be a mini-farmer's market to celebrate the love of local food and farmers.  Should be a great event!  Tell your friends!
