To introduce the program to the general public, they're throwing a "meet the truck" party tomorrow, Saturday, June 22, in East Nashville.
The event — which coincides with World Refugee Day weekend — runs 6 to 10 p.m. at the East-Centric Pavilion (1006 Fatherland St.), and will feature food "from dolmas to pad thai," with Asian, African, Middle Eastern and Caribbean cuisines represented. Live salsa music (by Revolfusion) and a silent auction are also on the program, along with appearances by ESL to Go creators Angela Harris and Leah Hashinger, Mayor Karl Dean and Gatluak Ter Thach, executive director of the Nashville International Center for Empowerment (and the subject of this Scene People Issue profile).
The $15 tickets include food and drink and are available online or on-site.
