Food Truck Tuesdays at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum through Oct. 17
Food Truck Tuesdays at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum have succeeded with the vendors as well as the diners, with a few mobile eateries running out of food the first couple of Tuesdays.
” … it was way bigger than we expected due to the promotion of the event, and there were only five trucks,” said Christina Cunningham, part of the family that owns Witty Pork’s Wood Fired Pizza and Witty Pork’s Street Treats food trucks. “This event is great at bringing the downtown community together.”
The Cunninghams park both trucks weekly at the museum, at 215. S. Tejon St., where the outdoor event continues from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each Tuesday through Oct. 17.
The pizza truck contains an Italian-made wood-fired brick oven, which is heated to more than 600 degrees and cooks pizzas in two to three minutes. That oven gives the pizza a unique, delicious taste. You can find a menu of classic pizzas such as pepperoni, cheese and sausage in addition to specialty pizzas such as the Southwestern and the Hawaiian. There’s a veggie pie too.
The Witty Pork’s Street Treats truck is where you’ll find sandwiches, salads, tacos and appetizers, as well as gourmet ice cream, fruit sorbets, Italian ices and milkshakes. Green chile is a specialty. Details: 426-1090, wittypork.com.

Price roll back
Prime25 steak and seafood restaurant, 1605 S. Tejon St., has lowered some prices, its Facebook announced.
“You told us and we listened!” the post said. “Lower prices, more fish options, and higher end wine selections.” General Manager Alison West said, “We took our steak options that once hit as high as $67, and now we stay under $44, unless it is a specialty cut or the Tomahawk, We added more fish options and brought on some items that are under $25. Plus we have increased our portion sizes on most dishes. The goal is to be affordable and not just a place to celebrate. It’s a local neighborhood place that listens to the guests’ feedback and gives a great value.”
