Hold on to those Mardi Gras beads you collected on Tuesday.
The local food truck fleet is gathering in a couple of weeks to put on a belated Mardi Gras party. Spearheaded by the Flying Stove, which just today put out its tempting Cajun menu (mmmmm, Po’ Boy), the event will be from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 2, near the WaterWalk Pavilion. The truckers have obtained permission to close down part of Water Street to set up the event, and they’ll have a live jazz band performing.
So far, the usual suspects such as B.S. Sandwich Press, MMM Sandwiches, Cakeface Bake Shop and Espresso To Go Go are on board and are planning Cajun items for their menus. The Flying Stove guys encourage any other food truckers who are interested in joining in to contact them via their Facebook page.
