First Annual Battle of the Food Trucks. Sunday, Oct. 2, 3-6 p.m. at Greer Stadium. Admission: $25. (Bring one or two cans of food and you'll receive a drink ticket; bring three cans of food and receive two drink tickets. Canned food will be donated to Second Harvest.) Special guest: Arnold Myint. Attendees will be able to sample from the entire lineup of food trucks and vote for a champion.
(Here's where I almost started using baseball metaphors for everything — a fastball is often referred to as "cheese," after all, and RBI is often pronounced "rib-eye," to say nothing of Dave Niehaus' favorite home-run call, "Get out the rye bread and mustard, Grandma, it is grand salami time!" Lucky for us all, I thought better of it.)
Meanwhile, The Tomorrow Fund is, in their words, "a Nashville based nonprofit organization under the umbrella of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee ... that raises money for youth-based organizations via service and social events." And there you have it. As we find out more about this literal kitchen stadium event, we will report here on Bites. Depeche cuisine!
