The powers that be over at random.org have chosen the winner for a spot on the judges’ panel for the Nashville Street Food Awards: commenter No. 10, Barbara Please! Barbara, please send me an email at lesley [at] lesleyeats.com with your contact information so I can forward it to the judging panel coordinator. And be sure to clear your calendar and choose your finest stretchy pants for this Saturday around lunch time.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Even if you didn’t win a spot on the judges’ panel, you should still come out to the festival (and maybe watch some of the judging). But note some important changes from the past awards.
First, the event will be at the Nashville Farmers’ Market instead of Centennial Park. So, in addition to all the food truck fun — which includes activities for the kids, craft beers, and live entertainment from The Cremonas and Deep Fried Five (and more) — you can also shop for food, plants, and the other great items available every Saturday at the market. Second, this event will be even bigger than last year. Nashville’s food truck community is growing stronger all the time and there are eight new trucks participating this year for a total of 35 trucks. That’s a huge selection of food truck fare to choose from. I suggest getting there early with a group of likeminded friends who like to share and spend the day grazing.
