Food Truck Operator to Open Bowling Venue

by Bob Johnson 0

A food truck operator in Albuquerque, N.M., Enrique Guerrero, says he hopes to open a new bistro and bowling facility in time for the summer season.

Guerrero, formerly executive chef at Albuquerque’s Scalo restaurant, has developed a loyal following for his Bang Bite Filling Station truck, but now is looking forward to once again practicing his craft in a single location.

According to the Albuquerque Business Journal, his new “community bistro,” to be called 500 Market, will occupy space in the Santa Fe Railyards previously occupied by a restaurant called Flying Star. Above that space, on the second floor, Guerrero says he will open Strike Bowl and Brew, featuring eight bowling lanes, pool tables and video games.

He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
