This past Sunday, Kimo (Team SunWorks President) hosted his highly anticipated event, The All Team Bash. Kimo’s summer meet happens once a year and draws out the best of the best teams in Houston from show cars, to drift cars, to VIP cars and everything else in-between. Due to finals, I unfortunately was unable to get away from my desk long enough to attend ATB. John P also couldn’t attend either because he operates his food truck (@RiceBoxTruck) at the same hours of the meet. John P decided that since there were already a ton of ricers out and about, he would make the announcement for a private MayDay Garage meet later that evening. The last minute venue we had chosen was a cool little hangout called, Liberty Station, which sat on one of the most popular streets in Houston, Washington Ave. There was already Cinco de Mayo festivities going on, so hosting a small meet here seemed appropriate.
The good thing about Liberty Station is that they usually always have different food trucks providing drunken hungriness. On this particular day, 3 food trucks had come out for Cinco de Mayo but my appetite only let me try one.

The Happy Ending food truck (@HappyEndingsHTX) is what I went with since I hadn’t had it before. It consisted of classic Filipino style cuisine with a modern approach to it and it was hella good. If you ever see them out, TRY THEM! Get a burger or hotdog to try their bread, you won’t regret it. If I’m not mistaken, their bread is home made and has a really nice fluffy sweetness to it. If you’ve ever had Hawaiian bread, it tastes pretty similar.
Steak fries. Kewpie mayo. Spicy sauce. Perfect pairing for beer.

Good times with good peoples
What started out as a small last minute thing, turned out to be an idea to do more often. Since John P threw his last large car meet (MayDay Junction 2008), we’ve been scourging for different venues to host another meet of the same caliber which almost made us lose sight of why we started MayDay Garage in the first place. It’s not about big events of meets; it’s about keeping it on the street. The idea that came about is to have smaller meets, more often. Give people incentive to drive their cars more and just come have fun with us whether it be attacking the Beltway or grabbing a late night bite. Keep updated with our Facebook page, as this will be the main communication tool we will use to let everyone know when/where it’s going down.
P.S. – Not to worry. The revival of Mayday Junction is still in the works.
