Hard Work Pays Off...

...and so does having amazing friends and family!!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the 13th & Farm event at w+k...(have i mentioned how awesome the company I work for is?)  The day was a total success...AND SO MUCH FUN!!!

This is what NW 13th looks like on a normal day...

And this is what it looks like when we bring a farmer's market to the Pearl District

My favorite booth, w+k Goodness

The day was so great.  Hectic, but great.  We had so many fabulous vendors there with everything from cheese, herbs, and mushrooms to fresh baked pies, bread and flowers.  It was a great way to celebrate local farmers and the importance of what they do.  Travis and I are excited to support them at our cart with only the freshest ingredients purchased at our local farmer's markets around town.  It's going to be fun!

This was The Grillery's table at the showing off all our hard work.

The "before" pictures really surprised people and they were blown away with how far we've come on the cart.  We got to talk to people about the process, our philosophy and what we're going to do with the cart going forward.  People could then look, touch and feel around the cart and see for themselves what all the hype was about.  All throughout the day, however, the BIG thing going on was the actual painting of the outside and transforming the trailer into a FOOD CART.

Hussein prepped the cart for painting by applying a huge layer of masking tape.

Then he went around and highlighted the design and the cut it out with a razor blade

And at last, the (almost) final project!!

We still have more painting to do to finish it up, but we love the "elephant skin" look of the cart.  Hussein did a fabulous job turning our grimy cart into a work of art! Shout out to Brad Simon for the logo design on the door.  

As soon as our kickstarter project gets funded we're off and running with The Grillery!  Stay tuned for more great things to come... 

And if you haven't done so already, please back us with a $1 pledge because time is running out!
