The now-monthly event has a few new trucks to behold.
The Acadiana Grilled Cheese Co. is appearing for its first time at this month’s round-up, and after a hiatus due to mechanical problems, Viva la Waffle is back in the mix, as well.
Pelon’s Mexican Hot Dogs, those fabulous turkey franks wrapped in bacon, are serving as a south-of-the-border homage to the Ragin’ Cajuns’ New Orleans Bowl victory with melted white queso, cayenne pico de gallo and spicy mayo. Freetown Fries is also doing a Mexican favorite: chicken fajita fries with cheese and peppers.
Lil’ Chubs Grill will have a Philly Cheesesteak slider with ribeye, pepper, onion and provolone, while newcomer LA StrEAT will be serving up burgers. Also in attendance are Kona Ice of Acadiana, A Change of Heart, Mrz Munchies and Manhattan Food Co.
The round-up takes place at E’s Kitchen in Parc Lafayette from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
