MAYOR’S FOOD TRUCK FIESTA Wednesday, Oct 3 11 a.m.
We don’t know how he’s going to make it over so fast from the Tampa Theatre, but it’s his idea and he really should show up. It’s held the first Wednesday of every month, and it’s a smorgasbord of cuisine served out of gourmet food trucks and so far it’s been a success. Admission is free, but bring money for the grub.
