Coffee, Charity, & Food Trucks: The Best Food Events in the Triangle This Week 

RODEO FOOD

Food truck season in downtown Raleigh unofficially launched last weekend, when the beer festival Brewgaloo interspersed a flotilla of them among nearly a hundred brewers along Fayetteville Street. The trucks return in force Sunday, May 1, for the year's first official rodeo—"a half-mile of Food Trucks & Restaurants spread out over eleven city blocks," organizers boast. They'll run the street between one and six p.m. A day earlier, Chapel Hill's Orange United Methodist Church hosts a dozen trucks (and bands, storytelling, and a bounce house) in a fund-raiser for TABLE, which distributes healthy meals to children in need in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, especially when school is not in session.

COMMUNITY COFFEE

The past several weeks have been significant for Counter Culture Coffee Company. Long one of the best roasters in America, Counter Culture upped its potential productivity in a major way by relocating from a too-small space near the Durham-Morrisville border to a massive recycled facility in East Durham. Shortly after the move was finished, veteran customer support employee Lem Butler captured the United States Barista Championship. So Counter Culture has a lot to celebrate at this free grand opening Saturday, April 30. Between ten a.m. and four p.m., you can tour the new space, sample the beans and brews, learn about the best techniques for making your own coffee, and try local foods created especially for the event. They'll even have a pop-up shop, so you can take the latest Counter Culture roasts home.
