Help Fund Localmotive’s Return

If you’re wondering whatever happened to the popular food truck Localmotive, it was a blown engine that was to blame for their abrupt halt to business. They’re trying to make a comeback though, and this time they’re turning to the generosity of their fans. Support Localmotive via their Kickstarter campaign from now until June 26. They hope to raise $40,000 so they can once again satisfy the late-night appetites of Old Market dwellers. http://kickstarter.com/profile/localmotive
