Wow. Is it really almost November?
It’s hard to believe that we had our first event on September 9th this year. Almost two months later, it’s time to pack it up and head into food truck hibernation.
We called this year our “Soft Launch”. Our late-to-the-game attempt to get our feet wet, see how we like it, and learn as MUCH as humanly possible in a rapidly shriveling window of time.
And I’d say we managed it. Not only did we go from Zero to Launched in about 5 weeks’ time, we have a host of other experiences under our belt. We’ve made new friends, forged invaluable connections, participated in city events and tiny flea markets, traveled more than 20 miles from the home base, crossed Lake Erie, spilled a fryer, tried a daily location, and most importantly, we’ve been cooking our food and sharing it with the community.
We’ve been blown away by the response. Truly, deeply flabbergasted. Who could have ever imagined that you guys would love our food so much? Well, we had hoped this might be the case–but we never thought the love would be so resounding and happen so FAST!
Cheers to the Soft Launch Year! Where we got our feet more than wet (drenched, really) and we’re left SALIVATING for the year to come!
On next year’s agenda, you can expect all the same great Gaucho & Gringa staples (our current menu…festival/event appearances…and a daily location) PLUS the addition of many Argentinian specials that we wanted to save for our first proper year in the game. We’ll unroll our schedule of events as things get settled in the coming months. We plan to hit the pavement in April, and serve allllll the way through October once more.
Thank you all for supporting us, for giving us a shot, for spreading the word with your friends and family. It means SO much to us…and we can’t wait to keep bringing delicious, locally-sourced, fresh Argentinian/American food to the Northern Ohio community.
