SEATTLE CENTER/MEALS ON WHEELS—Tequila brand Camarena is promoting its wares by way of a taco truck. The vehicular taco tour is stopping in Seattle, and Yajaira Carreon, chef at Maple Leaf Mexican restaurant/tequileria Coa developed the list of (tequila-infused) tacos to be dished out for free. The truck debuts this weekend at the Seattle Cigar Expo (whose surprisingly good food offerings include Crush chef Jason Wilson, El Gaucho and Skillet Diner) and will be showing up around the city through mid-September. Check out Jess Voelker's ruminations on this new trend of food trucks as marketing tools. [EaterWire]
