The crowd today has been a mix of dudes walking their dogs, curious old ladies on evening strolls, and even an errant vegetarian (she was cool, so they gave her some cheese), and everyone seems down with the free food. They've mostly been coming in leisurely intervals in groups of two or three, but a bunch of people rush the window five minutes to close. Apparently this happens every damn time, so the unfazed crew dishes out the last of the goods and then packs up the truck right on time. They're off to hit the town, and I'm off to go home and praise the deli gods I've never had to serve food in 140-freaking-degree heat.
(To meet up with the truck on its last legs, check out the schedule on Dietz & Watson's Facebook page.)
