|One side of the Rally 2013|
So last night The Guy and I took the kids out on the town for a local Food Truck Rally. Two Streets were closed off to accommodate over a dozen local food vendors who, thank the Food Gods, must love food just as much as us and the HUNDREDS of people who were there waiting in long lines and soaking up the foodie vibes. The selections were eclectic to say the least and we made a round to see what all had to offer, reading the specialties aloud from the hand written chalk boards. There were fried green tomatoes. Crab Cakes. Various Greek foods. Smoked Turkey legs and sausages. Beignets and much much more. The scene was as diverse as the food. There were teenagers holding hands, hip 20 somethings and on up from there. There were little kids EVERYWHERE. This made my son so happy as he spent time running and throwing leaves up into the air like the rest of the littles. The atmosphere was absolutely lovely. Even though we quickly realized that we were kind of unprepared for so many people, we didn't give up. All of the lines were pretty long, but it wasn't something to get upset about. It was exciting! We made the most of the lines we stood in talking about the different sizes and cool features the various Trucks, Carts and Trailers had. Our Daughter, who's pallet really makes me happy ordered a Korean style meatball sub that was...Delicious. We then mosied over to another line where we ordered a few Gourmet Burgers that were equally good. Mine was the Mango Burger and oh was it good. A freshly made burger patty, topped with a slice of cream cheese and this beautifully aromatic mango chutney on a perfect sized bun. The Burger place had run out of some things as I heard the guy taking orders tell a fellow patron that they didn't expect SO MANY people to show. Man, they must have felt so worn out at the end of the night as their line was no doubt the longest.
I'm so glad we made the trip and definitely look forward to the next rally.
We might just be hooked:)
