    The food truck Grind has grown from a Kickstarter project to one of the most popular places in the area to get a burger.

    Liz and Jesse Huot, the couple behind the burgers, will celebrate their first anniversary with a party from 6-10 p.m. Friday, April 5, at the Old 502 Winery (formerly River Bend Winery) in downtown Louisville. This also coincides with the First Friday Trolley Hop, so the good times and wine will indeed roll.

    Word on Grind’s Facebook page is that there will be an extra special burger for the evening called The Anniversary, “our delicious 1/3# custom-blended burger topped with seared Stone Cross Farms pork belly, sauteed kale, Boone Creek Creamery gruyere cheese with a Spanish paprika aioli.” I don’t even know where to begin with that description.

    Grind’s First Anniversary Party

    When: 6-10 p.m. Friday, April 5 (food served from 6-8 p.m. only)

    Where: Old 502 Winery, 120 S. 10th Street, Louisville

  4. Louisville food trucks gathering for two events this month


    October 11, 2012 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

    Remember when there were, like, no food trucks in town?

    There are at least a dozen food trucks with offerings span the food spectrum. And the good news is they play nice and have events together.

    Here are a couple of food truck round-ups taking place this month during which you can sample a variety of Louisville’s best food from the side of a truck.

    • DisTRUCKtion at Apocalypse Brew Works: Lil Cheezers, Holy Molé, Grind, Bluegrass Brick Oven Pizza, French Indo-Canada and Annie May’s Sweet Cafe will each create a new dish just for this event.
      • When: Friday, Oct. 19, 5 — 10 p.m.
      • Where: Apocalypse Brew Works, 1612 Mellwood Ave., Louisville
      • Cost: Free admission

  5. Event: The Moth StorySLAM and Grind food truck, Tuesday, Sept. 25


    September 19, 2012 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

    Want to hear some good storytellers, have a drink or two, and eat one of the best burgers in town?

    Spend your evening at The Moth StorySLAM next Tuesday, Sept. 25 at Headliners Music Hall.

    A story slam is similar to a poetry slam. Folks put their name in a box for a chance to tell the audience a true story pertaining to the topic of the evening. Next week’s topic is Unintended.

    The Moth StorySLAM takes place on the last Tuesday of every month. This month’s Moth will be extra special because Grind food truck will be parked outside Headliners from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Liz Huot, who runs Grind with her husband, Jesse, said they will develop a special burger just for the story slam. A grand slam, perhaps?

    Full disclosure, I’ve volunteered at the merchandise table for several months, and I’m friends with the producer of the show, Tara Anderson. I always have a good time listening to the often surprising stories regular people tell. I even told a story once.

    For more information about the event, go to The Moth’s website or Headliners’ website. Hope to see you there — and remember to bring some food money.

    The Moth StorySLAM, Headliners Music Hall, 1386 Lexington Road, Louisville

    When: Sept. 25; doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.

    Cost: $8
