On late Sunday night/early Monday morning someone vandalized The Evil Wiener food truck and stole their Honda EB 10000 gas generator, according to a post on their Facebook page.

A Go Fund Me campaign has been set up to help the business—which is closed for now—get back to slinging wieners, hopefully soon.  "I have several jobs this week that I am going to miss because of not having a job," the business wrote in a Facebook comment, "including possibly two weekend festivals."

As of Tuesday afternoon, the campaign has raised $2,695 out of a goal of $7,500.

When it's operating regularly, the truck spends a lot of time at 6th and Waller selling 100% beef wieners like "The Cowgirl" (Texas-style brisket, BBQ sauce, pickles, onions, and shredded lettuce), although it moves around a good amount--their website encourages you to "FOLLOW THE WIENER" on Twitter for frequent location updates.
