MEALS ON WHEELS—A Mobile Chowdown competitor? Seattle Met has the latest in food truck gatherings: The city's first Mobile Food Rodeo will be September 17, behind the Interbay Whole Foods. More than 20 trucks have signed on, including newcomer Snout & Co. and some Portland food trucks, one of which bears the awesome name of Happy Grillmore. Ticket info here. [Seattle Met]

SEA-TAC—The airport's newest restaurant, Seattle Seahawks 12 Club, is now open in the airport's north satellite (those funky N gates that harbor puddle-jumpers). It serves exactly the kind of food you'd expect at a place called Seattle Seahawks 12 Club. Look for the hulking statue of Walter Jones. [EaterWire]
