This week: a food truck extravaganza in Renton, rabbit at Tavolàta, and free Earth Day burritos at Chipotle.

By Anne Larkin April 9, 2012

Ice-cream sandwich purveyors Street Treats will be at Harley Davidson in Renton on Saturday.

Earth Day at Chipotle
Chipotle is putting on an Earth Day deal: Buy a reuseable lunch bag (made out of repurposed Chipotle billboards) between now and April 14, and you’ll get a coupon for a free burrito on Earth Day, April 22.

Making Piece Reading
Journalist Beth Howard will be at the University of Washington bookstore at 7pm, chatting with Diane Mapes, a local author, and reading from her book Making Piece: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie about her trip around the country, baking pies in an RV and sharing them with whomever she encountered.

Harley Davidson Anniversary Party
The downtown Renton Harley store is putting on a food cart extravaganza this Saturday. A dozen or so trucks will be at the event, including Street Treats, Bigfood, and Snout and Co. There are also promises of wood-fired oysters and plenty of bacon salt. And a Hendrix cover band. And the Go Go girls. And a zip line.

Locavore Lessons
The University of Washington’s Experimental College is offering a crash course in making the locavore ethic part of the everyday routine, with lessons in seasonal shopping, cooking, and eating. The four-part class will meet on Saturdays at 10, and the series is $90 for the general public, $66 for UW students.

SUNDAY April 15
Sunday Supper at Tavolàta: Rabbit
This month’s Sunday feast has a nice post-Easter theme…rabbit. Rabbit saddle stuffed with braised rabbit and dates stands at the center of the meal, surrounded by ravioli and watercress, carrots and spinach. The $50 meal ends with cupcakes—reservations are recommended.

April 20 Arcade Lights Place Market’s North Arcade is turning into a tasting paradise on Friday, April 20. Over 60 artisans will be offering up bits and sips, to the music of the market buskers. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 day of, and a ticket gets you 10 tasting tokens.

April 21 and 22 Passport to Woodinville Wine tastings galore in Woodinville—over 30 wineries will be participating in the two-day event. A shuttle bus is available to tipsy tasters as they explore the area. Tasting rooms will be open from 11 to 4 each day, and tickets are $65 for Sunday only, $75 for both days.

May 6 Mobile Food Rodeo In just under a month, 35 of the city’s best mobile food purveyors will gather together in Fremont for a massive food-cart fest. VIF tickets (get over the silly name and avoid the lines!) are available for $25. Full disclosure: Seattle Met is a sponsor.

June 2 Food Lust Tickets are on sale now for the annual Cascade Harvest Coalition benefit. The event, which takes place out on Willie Green’s Organic farm in Monroe, begins with a silent auction and appetizers, moves on to a meal celebrating the bounty of summer, and ends with a live auction. Tickets are $85 and available online.
