Change Is In The Air

Pumpkins

Ah, fall. That time of year when you wake up to a cool, crisp morning and still have a few hours warm afternoon sunlight streaming through the red and yellow leaves. In Sonoma, it also means the rain is on its way, and we are happy to have had a decent downpour earlier this week.

Drums & Crumbs is in its own season of change. Our pop-up cafe at the Renaissance Marin came to an expected but abrupt end as a new food business moved into the space full time. We have used this extra day to prepare for our biggest change yet, the food truck!

Like many of you, we are impatient for it to be finished, but the end is finally in sight. Construction is finished and all inspections are completed. All it needs is its bright and beautiful vinyl wrap before it’ll make the journey from Los Angeles to the North Bay. As with every other step so far, things seem to be moving slower than they should, but we have embraced the opportunity to get organized and introduce a few new faces to our team.

We are also in the final stages of one more exciting surprising… a new website!  Our designer at Design Womb and our programmer at Spark Creative have collaborated to create a beautiful, modern website that captures the Drums & Crumbs brand perfectly and showcases what we offer. We can’t wait for you to see it!

We have two weeks left at the Valley of the Moon Farmers Market on Tuesday evenings in Sonoma, so come see us before its over!


Rachel & Lizette In The Sonoma Index Tribune!

Drums & Crumbs Intern in the Sonoma Index Tribune

Sonoma Valley Teen Services offers a fantastic program to help teenagers prepare for the “real world” called Skills for Life – Ready to Work. Teens that complete this six-week program are eligible for placement in an internship or paid employment. Everyone at Drums & Crumbs was thrilled when Lizette, a graduate of the program and a student at Sonoma Valley High School, joined us at the beginning of the summer to help with the Tuesday night farmers market. Over the past four months, she has been a wonderful addition to our team and has helped at the market each week, as well as at special events.

You can read more about the program, as well as see a photo of Rachel and Lizette at the farmers market, in a featured article in the Sonoma Index Tribune.

Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves because we feel so lucky. Over the past year and a half, Drums & Crumbs has had the privilege of “working” at some of the most beautiful venues in the North Bay. We thought we’d take a moment to share some of our favorite sunset moments so far.

San Rafael Twilight Criterium

2014 San Rafael Twilight Criterium

Drums & Crumbs had a front row view to the 2014 San Rafael Twilight Criterium this past weekend. We set up our tent next to Strike Brewing Co. and sold our favorite Fried Chicken Sandwich with sides of Baked Mac & Cheese and Fresh Mixed Greens. To finish it off, we had our Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, which was so popular, we’ve started selling it at the Tuesday night farmer’s market as well.

In addition to our tent, we also had the honor of catering the VIP “Twilight Club.” Those guest were treated to a choice of Arthur’s Fried Chicken with Baked Mac & Cheese, Fresh Mixed Greens and Buttermilk Biscuits or a box of Baked Mac & Cheese, Spicy Black Eyed Peas, Fresh Mixed Greens and a gluten-free Corn Muffin.

We couldn’t have had a more exciting street debut in San Rafael. We are glad we could introduce Drums & Crumbs to so many new people.

Truck Update: It’s Alive!

Rachel Hundley and the Drums & Crumbs Food Truck

Over the holiday weekend, Rachel headed down to Southern California to check out the progress on our food truck in person. We knew the truck had been purchased and construction had begun, but, even after repeated requests, our builder never sent photos of the truck or its progress, so we wanted to see it for ourselves.

What a beauty!

Through the back door

As you can see, the electrical wiring and counters are installed. This week, it will hopefully be inspected by the Department of Housing and have a smog inspection. After that, it’ll take a couple of weeks to install the appliances and the plumbing. After the final touches inside, they will send it out to get wrapped in the beautiful design created for us by Design Womb. Theoretically, we could have it mid-August… but we won’t start planning our grand opening until it is actually on its way.

Rachel decided to make a weekend out of the trip, driving Highway 1 through Big Sur, spending two nights in Santa Barbara, and passing through Santa Cruz on her way home.
