The Los Angeles pop-up and food truck Vuture Food (a nod to a vegan future) is making a trek around the nation and is making a one-time stop at the Midtown taproom and beer garden located at the At Ease Brewing Company (1825 I St.) on Friday, Dec. 27. Formerly known as Evolution Burger, the eatery has evolved from simple looks-like-chicken sandwiches into having chunkier, “meatier” bites. You can get your hands on some loaded fries topped with sauce and lettuce or choose from a variety of vegan Chik’n sandwiches that are stuffed with lettuce, cole slaw or pickles and dripping in finger-licking sauce. Have a night out with friends or leave the kids with a sitter to grab a bite or two of plant-based junk food. The pop-up will start at 4 p.m. and will go through 8 p.m., so make sure to catch them because they’ll be gone before you know it. With the taproom in service, you can make the perfect selection of cold IPAs, pale ales or foamy stouts to go with your meal. No admission fee is required, but come ready to splurge on food and drinks. For more details on the Sacramento event visit
