As reported earlier, Bernie's Burger Bus is on hiatus. After posting, Eater found the temporary closure was much more somber than simple mechanical problems. Posted on the Bernie's Facebook page today:
Sorry for the Big scare everybody. We are closed Indefinitely but that does [not] mean forever. We will be back SOON just do not have a date. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with us we have lost a dear dear friend and coworker.
According to Culturemap, employee Daniel Pacheco passed away over the weekend from a tragic accident and the bus is closed to allow fellow co-workers time to grieve. Talk of a food truck event raising money for the Pacheco family has already begun.
