On Saturday, November 28th, Chuck’s Hop Shop Greenwood celebrated Small Business Saturday.  Chuck’s partnered with AMEX and food trucks Bread & Circuses, Hallava Falafel, and Wood Shop BBQ to raise money for the Greenwood Food Bank.

Hallava Falafel, Wood Shop BBQ, Bread & Circuses all lined up
Chuck’s (Greenwood and Central District) is a great place to find food trucks on a daily basis.  You can find a calendar for each location online or a paper version onsite.  Chuck’s offers a great selection of beer, cider, and soda.  It’s a great place to hang out with kids.  Aside from beer, you can get a scoop of Full Tilt ice cream.  They even carry ube now!  And, in case you need to bring your dog, they’re always welcome here.

As a special that day, $15 bought a flight of beers from four local breweries plus a three course meal from the trucks.  If that wasn’t enough, each purchase got you an entry into a drawing to win prizes from businesses in Greenwood and Ballard.  To top it all off, 100% of the profits went to the Greenwood Food Bank!

As you all know, I’m a firm supporter of food trucks.  Most (not all) are small businesses.  They rely on us this time of year whether it’s on regular routes, special events, or catering.  I was late to the party due to other obligations.  I showed up towards the end of the day and everyone was in a jovial mood.  What’s not to love?  Beer + food trucks + a good cause = smiles for days!
