Food Network Hoopla

Boy, yesterday was a busy day. We braved really unpleasant weather to get a meager amount of work done on the gypsy wagon, we marched for change, and...we went all over town exploring the filming of a new Food Network reality show. Apparently, Food Network is filming a new reality show involving food trucks traveling from West to East in a competition to sell the most food. I read in the paper that one of the trucks was a Banh Mi cart, and well, I got pretty excited. You can't get banh mi around here. The paper said the location was top secret, so we drove around, and we found every other truck but the banh mi. Three trucks were parked on the plaza, and it was pretty funny to watch the baffled cameramen when the Immigrant Rights March took over the area. We finally spotted our target parked outside of REI. Of course, just our luck, they were out of supplies and wouldn't be back for 2 hours! I figure they had to drive to Albuquerque to get the ingredients they needed to continue.

There is a saving grace though. The truck will be parked at another location in town today. I know what I'm having for lunch!

PS. This truck is pretty durned cute, eh?
