Well, it is the end of the year and I know you plan on ringing in 2010 in style. The are plenty of carts who plan on being open to feed the masses, so you should plan your night accordingly.
Big-A** Sandwiches, the latest addition to downtown will be open and ready with some amazing sandwiches, fries and other goodies. They sold out today, so that tells you they have some customer love. We have been assured they are prepared for you tomorrow night and your sandwich needs. Big-A** Sandwiches is located on SW 3rd and Ash by the Ash St. Saloon and around the corner from Berbati's and Dantes. They plan on opening around 8pm and staying open till the wee hours of the new year.

They also have stuff planned for around midnight, so you'll have to visit to see. Check out this recent addition to the cart scene at SW 3rd and Stark - the green cart on the corner. Oh, and bring napkins.
CARTOPIA - need I say more? Cartopia is the cart pod at SE 12th and Hawthorne. Cartopia defined the term "late night pod" in 2009 and would proclaim themselves as the cart pod for NYE. It is my understanding that most, if not all of the carts will be open throughout the night - Whiffies, Potato Champion, YARP?!, Bubba Bernies, Pyro Pizza. This is where the after party will happen. Word!
