It's a food truck explosion! The Bacon Trolley rolled out this week with bacon popcorn, pork belly banh mi, and a sandwich called Spanker! And Bloomy's Roast Beef finally hit the streets with locally grown and slowly cooked beef.
Plus, Natedogs has bottled his snappy mustard, so grab one for $6 next time you visit the cart.
Cooks of Crocus Hill opens this weekend in the former Chef's Gallery space in Stillwater, and there are deals-a-plenty!CLOSES
Well, it looks like Jack's is closing as of tonight. Is it as simple as chef-departs-owner-folds? There is so much craziness surrounding the roller coaster ride of this joint, stories that go back a few years even, that I can tell you this saga is far from over.***** There is still time to pack your bags and get North for a little Food & Wine Lover's weekend at Bluefin Bay May 4-5. New Scenic chef Scott Graden has partnered up with the hotel to deliver a tasty two days of wine tasting, multi-course dinners, and fresh bracing air. ***** Get your tix NOW for Youth Farm and Market Project's Spring Fest on May 1oth. It's going to be quite the evening at Summit Brewery with Alex Roberts and a dozen of his pals dishing it up for this awesome organization that puts kids, farming, food, and community together. The $50 ticket includes all the food and Summit you can handle, and 100% of the proceeds goes to the kids. Listen to Weekly Dish tomorrow from 1-2pm, Chef Alex Roberts will be on to talk about the event. ***** The Beer Dabbler has announced two summer events. Look for a dabbler at Pride this June and at Highland Fest in July. You know how fast those tix fly, so think about heading over to Tiffany's on Wednesday May 2 for a little pre-sale party that includes a $5 discount and a tap takeover with Sam Addams specialty brews. A sneaky sip if you will before their release during American Craft Beer Week. Regular ticket sales for the Dabbler will go on sale May 4. ***** If you can't wait until June, maybe check out Great Waters All Cask Beer Dinner celebrating the brewpub's 15th anniversary. For $65 you'll get five courses and paired with five casks, as with the pork tenderloin and polenta with mild chipotle sauce paired with New Centurian Mild Ale. Call soon, seating is limited. ***** May Day is shaping up to be a good one. The 5-8 Tavern in Maplewood is celebrating ten years, and the kick-off starts May 1 with free A.M. Juicy Lucy sandwiches (two pork sausage patties stuffed with cheddar cheese on a biscuit, egg optional) to the first 100 people beginning at 8am. A juicy breakfast sandwich is way more fun than that silly May pole you had planned, admit it. ***** P.S. .... Rustica was named one of the Top 10 Baguettes in America by Bon Appetit. Le duh.
