Following in the footsteps tire tracks of Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen, Mini Burger Truck is looking to open permanent location to augment its mobile food business in the fall, reports Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
The final details on Vculek's lease are still being worked out, but Vculek plans to serve an expanded version of his burger-themed menu. The exact location should be announced soon. However, there's one catch. Once its second truck goes online, MiniBurger will begin operating under a different name. Vculek wasn't able to trademark the name "MiniBurger" because it was too general, so the new as-yet-untitled name will have more of a brandable and catchy ring to it.
Macias also reports that Mini Burger Truck is about to expand its fleet, but Cowtown Eats readers knew about that back in August 2011.

Whiskeys Galore - The folks at de Vere’s Irish Pub in downtown Sacramento pride themselves on knowing their Glenlivet from their Glenfiddich. In fact, the bar boasts the largest and most varied collection of fine whiskeys in the metro area. “We try to find things that are a little bit random,” says co-owner Henry de Vere White.

Check it Out: Kathmandu Kitchen - I happen to be a big fan of garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas), but can’t seem to get anyone else in my family to eat them. The other night, longing for a gluttonous serving of the tasty legumes, I made my way to Kathmandu Kitchen on Broadway and ordered not one – but two – dishes starring garbanzos. The chana masala is a lovely tomato-based stew with fresh herbs and spices; the saag chana masala combines fresh spinach and garbanzo beans into a delectable, toothsome (vegetarian) feast.
