Jonah Fliegelman, a tennis pro at Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education, has set up a delicious lineup of food trucks and other mobile operators for the AAYTE’s “Taste of Tennis” event Sunday, Oct. 2 at the facility, at 4842 Ridge Ave. in East Falls.
Fliegelman himself is about to hit the road with Pitruco, a wood-fired pizza truck that he’s working on with Nathan Winkler-Rhoades, who just finished defending his Ph.D dissertation in developmental psychology at Harvard, and Food Trust alumnus Eric Hilkowitz.
There also will be appearances by:
- Strada Pasta, which serves traditional Northern Italian egg pastas.
- Latin Farmer, a sustainably operated truck with a Latin flavor.
- A Cupcake Wonderland
- Mellody Brewing, a future nanobrewery
- LoveBar, a new chocolate company
As for Pitruco (the name is a mashup of PIzzaTRUCkCOmpany): It will set up this Saturday (Oct. 1) at LOVE Park, followed by a visit to the Night Market in Chinatown on Oct. 6. Thereafter, it will camp out at lunchtime Mondays and Wednesdays at LOVE Park and Tuesdays and Thursdays at Drexel U.
