Fourth of July grill kits from local restaurants, and other restaurant news

Updated July 1, 2020 - 1:31 pm

A decade of Fuku

It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Fukuburger began serving tasty burgers out of a truck to late-night crowds throughout the valley. But Colin Fukunaga will mark a decade in Las Vegas with an anniversary celebration on July 6, where he and his team will take it back to the parking lots where it all began. From 6 to 9 p.m., they’ll be serving 500 free meals in the Boca Park lot, in front of Optic Gallery, 8880 W. Charleston Blvd.. The event will be held in conjunction with Children’s Service Guild of Southern Nevada and the Clark County Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), and donations will be accepted to go toward “job-hunt-related costs for vulnerable youth,” such as ID cards, clothing for interviews, honors and incentives. To allow for social distancing, friends and fans are encouraged to drive up, make a donation if they choose, and take their meals to-go (or the team will gladly walk your burger to your car, if you prefer).
