Willamette Week’s annual food cart festival – Eat Mobile – will be happening next Saturday, April 24, under the Morrison bridge. Eat Mobile will showcase 30 of Portland’s food carts who will be offering up tastings of their favorite dishes. Carts include Addy’s Sandwiches, Fat Kitty Falafel, Grilled Cheese Grill, Mono Malo, Nuevo Mexico, The People’s Pig, Pyro Pizza, Tabor, Violetta and many more. I spoke with Cliff Allen at The People’s Pig and along with his sampler, he will be roasting a whole pig to server up. Such a great event to showcase Portland’s carts all in one location.
Willamette Week has been gracious enough to provide us 2 wristbands which will get you into the event on Saturday. We’re going to have another essay contest to see who gets the tickets. In 150-300 words, tell us about your first visit to a cart and why it was memorable. Be creative. Maybe a poem. We’re looking for pizazz. Send us your entry via the contact form or directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. The contest ends at 5pm Monday, April 19, so you have the whole weekend to craft a masterpiece. We’ll contact the winner and announce the entry on Tuesday.
I look forward to Eat Mobile and your essays. We’ll have an esteemed panel of judges to review the entries. Good Luck.
Saturday, April 24, 5:30-9:30pm
