Last night we popped down to the Street Food Rodeo, a special event over by the Co-Op sponsored by the Davis Dirt with lots of food trucks and street food available. There was music and dancing, and I had some nice samosas and paella. I also managed to get in a sketch of the “Star Ginger” Thai food truck, which is usually found on campus by the Silo. I have never eaten from this truck but will try it some time; I do like Thai curry. Plus it’s called Star Ginger. I like to think I’m a star ginger too (though nobody else is allowed to call me that; it’s star redhead to you). I drew this in the Moleskine while my son was off playing with big sticks in the parking lot – it was better than him playing on the adjacent railroad tracks, like many other preschoolers were apparently being allowed by their parents to do (completely mental). The early evening was nice though, and lots of locals were out enjoying the food. It’s been a busy week, and by golly it’s going to get busier. Better stay well fed.

Great sketch. I went, and just happened to have a BBQ chicken roll from the Star Ginger, it was fantastic :)
