Tucker Community Spotlight - April 2018
The team at The Freakin Incan created a splash last fall when they brought their Peruvian street food concept to Tucker’s Main Street. While their saltados (stir-fry) and piscos (cocktails) quickly became staples of the Tucker food scene, the Incan team has continued to fine-tune the dining experience, exploring new ways to make themselves feel at home in Tucker. Enter the “Hasta Lavista”.
“It’s a secret menu drink,” explains restaurant owner Mikiel Arnold. “We would like to invite all the residents of Tucker to come in and have their own little drink that’s [off-menu] and get a drink that’s made specifically for Tucker.”
The “Hasta Lavista” (pronounced like Lavista Road) was created in conjunction with the kick-off of Incan’s new happy hour, where customers can enjoy half-price small plates on weekdays from 4-6 p.m. Arnold says he hopes it will tempt curious foodies, as well as those who are regulars, to get their evening started a little earlier on Main Street.
“As a new restaurant, we’re trying to become a part of the community [and] become involved in the community.”
The Freakin Incan is located at 2316 Main Street, Suite C.
“Nothing says Tucker quite like Jamey Wilson and nobody loves Tucker like Jamey Wilson.
Jamey has been part of Tucker his entire life, as he is part of the Cofer Family. He has always approached his service and involvement in Tucker with a servant’s heart.
Many of you reading this now came out on March 10 to enjoy the Tucker Chili Cook-Off. Jamey is the driving force behind that event, as he is with Christmas on Main Street. He also is a driving force with the Tucker Cruise-In and helps with the set-up for Tucker Day. He does all of this just for the betterment of Tucker. He has never asked for anything in return.
It is for this reason that I believe Jamey would be a great candidate for the Citizen of the Month. Tucker is a wonderful place and a large part of it is because of citizens like Jamey, who work so hard to make it awesome!”
