Next time you walk up to a truck or van, you might not just be looking for something to eat. The folks behind one of Brisbane's most popular roving restaurants are planning to branch out — and instead of setting up a permanent store like many of their peers, they're switching from food to drinks.
Yes, after conquering the latest culinary trend, the proprietors of Juan More Taco have their sights set on creating the city's first mobile Kombi bar. Juanita Margarita is the new venture's rather fitting name. No prizes for guessing their beverage of choice.
Once it's up and running, the van will be available to hire for events, functions and fiestas. To get to that point though, they need your help — which is why they've set up a crowdfunding campaign. Donations will help the Juanita Margarita crew restore, convert and fit out their 1976 Kombi camper. If enough cash is raised — their target is $30,000 — a margarita machine, beer tap, themed props and maybe even some AstroTurf will form part of their plans.
It's another one of those obvious but ingenious ideas we can't believe no one has thought of before, but are really glad that someone finally did. Every food truck event needs a bar, after all — and in Brisbane, there's certainly plenty of meals-on-wheels gatherings in need of delicious accompanying refreshments.
