Flying Stove food truck gets national attention

A Forbes.com article posted on Mondayputs Wichita’s own The Flying Stove on a list of “25 of the coolest” food trucks in America.

Though the list is not definitive, says author Karsten Strauss in the intro, it’s a “collection of some of the finest and more successful food trucks in the land.”

Jeff Schauf, who owns the truck with his chef brother Rob Schauf, said he had absolutely no idea how the truck made the list. He heard about it like everyone else did – on Facebook.

“It’s pretty cool when you work hard and someone notices, even if you don’t know how they noticed,” he said.

In other Stove news, the boys and their food truck buddies plan to gather Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for their monthly Food Trucks at the Fountains event at WaterWalk, 515 S. Main. It’s supposed to be cold outside, so this month’s installment won’t have any outdoor extras, but several trucks will be there serving lots of hot food.

Larry Bud’s going ‘Duck Dynasty’

The night before Thanksgiving is always a big night for Larry Bud’s, said owner Will Harmon. People are in town visiting their kinfolk and need to lube themselves up for family interaction with some beers, etc. The bar is always packed.

This year, Harmon decided to add a twist to the Thanksgiving eve festivities and took inspiration from his favorite show – “Duck Dynasty.” On Wednesday, Larry Bud’s two Wichita locations will be putting on “Duck Dynasty” parties and are asking attendees to come dressed as characters from the show. Camouflage is encouraged, and prizes for the best costume include a session of machine gun shooting.

“I like ‘Duck Dynasty.’ I like to blow things up. I like to shoot things. And I like to dress in camo,” Harmon said, explaining how he came up with idea for the event.

The evening will include live music, costume contests for individuals and groups, “Duck Dynasty” prizes from Gander Mountain and more. The parties will happen at both Larry Buds – at 2120 N. Woodlawn and 6200 W. 21st St. – and should last from about 9 p.m. until 2 a.m.
