Melissa and I are in trouble,” Bracken wrote in the post. “Our former landlord from our restaurant that killed Covid received a court order and took our food truck. He’s coming behind our house, too.” We’re trying to live up to our commitments to meet for events by operating out of a tent or something, but the truck was in the shop for a week before it was impounded so we couldn’t raise money to buy products for our big show that weekend, and now we have legal fees on top of that.” Derek Steinbrecher, Corporate The managing director of Ice House Lofts said his company received a judgment against the Celtic Pig (regarding the food truck) in November but could not give further details because of the ongoing litigation.
