Late last year, we reported that Stephanie Morgan and her partners in awesome vegan cuisine were looking at the space next to Playground in downtown Santa Ana's
Fiesta Marketplace East End. It's taken a few months, but they've finally committed to the space.
There's just one problem: it's a former zapatería–a shoe
store–and it needs to be built out as a restaurant, which takes lots of
money, honey. They don't have the prize money from the Great Food Truck
Race (that went, in part, to open Playground), and they need $200,000 in
order to get it done, so they've launched a Kickstarter campaign to
raise half that amount.
Seabirds wasn't OC Weekly's Best New-Age Food Truck
last year for no reason; if they can make cuisine that good in a
commissary and a food truck, imagine what they could do with a larger
permanent space that doesn't break down every few thousand miles.
To donate, go to their Kickstarter page. There will be gifts and prizes, including an invitation to the grand opening party.
