New Yorkers love their food. Subsequently, they love their food trucks. Wafels & Dinges, Kelvin's Slush and Korilla BBQ are just a few of our favorites. Lately, food truck festivals are all the rage, bringing together a major chunk of NYC's trucks to one spot for foodies to go crazy over. But what happens when your favorite food trucks are nowhere to be found? However much we love them, we also hate them because you just have to be at the right spot at the right time to find them. Thank goodness for LunchCalling, a new delivery site just for food trucks. A great alternative to Seamless, this new site allows people to order from street vendors and other mobile food vendors.

A charity initiative brought to you by Gaz (Gary) Regan, Just One Shift, has an amazing (and fun) plan to raise $250,000 in a week long fundraising campaign by inviting bartenders worldwide to donate all or part of their tips from just one shift (Get it?). Fittingly, the funds raised will benefit Wine to Water, a non-profit founded by a bartender, that focuses on providing clean water to needy people worldwide. Since World Water Day is coming up on March 26th, it is the perfect time to get aboard the clean water wagon.
