Food trucks and art to join forces Friday

Now here's an event that'll satiate your hunger for mobile food and art. A Friday night fundraiser at Beatnik Studios (2421 17th St., Sacramento) on Friday night will feature an exhibition of black-and-white photography, live local bands and food truck eats from Fuzion Eatz, Mama Kim and Wicked 'Wich.

In the case of Wicked 'Wich, you'll find a special menu and guest cooking from Matt Chong of GetSRVD. Chong's GetSRVD blog seeks to bridge the gaps between street eats and urban culture, and was also behind a very cool night of banh mi sandwiches and hip-hop music with Sacto's Live Manikins. This time up, Chong will help prepare a special Asian-themed menu at the Wicked 'Wich truck including vegan banh mi, grilled pork banh mi, pork belly sandwiches and chicken adobo.

"These are traditional Asian flavors remixed into a sandwich form," said Chong. "We're also bringing back one thing that people were talking about: Kool-Aid sunomono (aka Japanese pickles). It adds a stronger acidic note with a little flavor behind it. The whole combo has a sense of humor ... (foodies) sometimes take themselves way too seriously."

The event starts at 6 p.m. For more info:
