Meals Truck Wednesday goes sturdy in Colorado Springs | Arts and leisure

The 719 Hump Day Food Truck Rally at Copperhead Road Bar, 3330 N. Academy Blvd., Wednesdays 11am to 8pm is going well.

Matt Spain, owner of Mateos Catering and personal chef and organizer of the food truck rally, told his staff via email: “According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health we wear masks and gloves, wash our hands for over 20 seconds and use a disinfectant for hard surfaces every hour. We clean our POS screen between customers. We take cash or cards and have hand sanitizer on the counter for customers. We can’t monitor customers, but we share expectations with them. We ask the customer not to have more than five people in a row for orders and they must practice social distancing. All rally trucks are distributed more than normal and we have a limited number of 10 trucks. Food is served to take away. “

He can’t speak for other truck operators, but said, “Overall, trucks have their own guidelines to be COVID-19 compliant.”

There are public toilets on the terrace of the Copperhead Bar and bar service is also available.

“Copperhead has also followed its COVID-19 compliant rules and guidelines,” he said.

Last week’s rally included the following food trucks: Miggys Meltdown, The Fiesta Grill, Conrads Flava Fusion, Mateos Catering and Personal Chef (Get Your Philly On), Smokin ‘Js BBQ, Kushland Kabab, Twisted American, Dolce Latte and Slow Downz Texas Creole. The weekly schedule can be found at
