Battle of the Food Trucks Coming Up on SUNDAY!

Posted by on Thu, Sep 29, 2011 at 11:59 AM

We here on Bites have been looking forward to this weekend's Battle of the Food Trucks since we first heard about it back in July. I wrote about it again when tickets went on sale, and I included it in the Scene's Fall Guide. I had a little mention of it along with three other events this weekend — the Music City Southern Hot Wing Festival, the Southern Artisan Cheese Festival, and the Nashville Beer Festival — in today's print edition of the Scene.

Well, somewhere along the way I suffered a brain glitch and accidentally misstated the day of the week for the Battle of the Food Trucks. It's this SUNDAY, Oct. 2, 3 to 6 p.m. in the Greer Stadium parking lot.

Participating food trucks include: Deg Thai, Hoss' Loaded Burgers, JonBalaya, Love Shack, Maggie's Mobile Slab, Moovers & Shakers, Riff's Fine Street Food, Taste of Belgium, Terradelicious, The Cupcake Collection, Izzie's Ice, Fleur de Lis Flavors, Tin Can Treats, Mere Bulles, The Latin Wagon, Smoke et al, Mean Green Ice Cream Machine and Sugar Wagon.

The master of ceremonies is the always-entertaining Chef Arnold Myint.

Proceeds benefit The Tomorrow Fund (a fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee) and its mission to help children. Tickets are available here.

Here's how the full item should have read:

If a good ol' spicy wing is your kind of party starter, the Music City Southern Hot Wing Festival is the place to be this weekend. The new festival, an offshoot of an annual Memphis event, runs 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at Walk of Fame Park downtown, with live music, kids' activities and the chance to sample wings as teams cook madly to win $1,000 and bragging rights as top wing wranglers. Judges include Brad Schmitt, Steve Gill (he'll only touch the right wing), the Scene's own food-and-wine obsessive Chris Chamberlain, bow-tie wearing polymath J.R. Lind of The City Paper, and favorite food bloggers Amanda Saad, Vivek Surti and Tabitha Tune. The event is $20 and benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities Nashville.

This is one of the most jam-packed food weekends in memory, with three other brand-new events also on the agenda: the Southern Artisan Cheese Festival (6 to 9 p.m. Friday at the Nashville Farmers' Market), the Battle of the Food Trucks (3 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Greer Stadium) and the Nashville Beer Festival (1 to 6 p.m. Saturday at Riverfront Park, followed by live music until 11 p.m.).
