This weekend, about $800 worth of catering equipment belonging to the Bici-Cocina bicycle food cart was taken from a curb on South Cayuga Street, and they’d love to get it back.
Bici-Cocina is a mobile food cart that gets around town towed by bicycle, rather than by a car or truck, and they serve freshly made Colombian food at events around the Ithaca area.
One of the owners, Carolina Osorio Gil, says of the equipment taken, “I understand someone may have thought it was free, but it was next to my car waiting to be loaded in.” It’s very common in some neighborhoods for stuff to be set out on the curb (usually with a “Free!” sign) for anyone to take, but this equipment, which included chafing dishes, hotel pans, and a large brown cambro, or cooler, wasn’t being given away.
Recently, Bici-Cocina has been dishing up their tasty Latin fare at Bike to Work Day, at Good Life Farm’s Asparaganza event, and often at Press Bay Alley in Downtown Ithaca.
If you inadvertently took this equipment, or know where it might be, please contact Bici-Cocina via their Facebook page or by phone at 607-342-8173.
