You should really never eat anything you find on the street, unless you're at a sexy sushi party and ex-Mayor John is the naked model, as usual. For street-based food minus his side-abs, get over to Eat Along The Street.
A shindig from the minds of a Thai chef and a kitchen designer, EATS (clever!) is rounding up street-pounding trucks and trailers for a one-day festival of wheeled gluttony, with all proceeds aiding Thai orphans who're preparing for cooking and hospitality jobs -- both of which're basically about pimping out a pad.
Vendors include Main Street Market's BBQ smoke trailer, Meze Kebab House, who'll be grilling an entire lamb, and Nomad Pizza, who’s previewing its soon-to-open Midtown Village joint from a vintage truck slinging pies like Margherita, organic spicy sausage, and nitrate-free pepperoni, and if you don't know why nitrates are bad for you, they've obviously already seeped deep into your brain.
'Cause not drinking is unsafe, there'll be PDC hooch cocktails, wine from folks like Jake's & Cooper's, and brews from Yard's and apparently dried-out Manayunk Brewery, who’s bringing standards like their Krook's Mill and Schuylkill Punch along with a black pale ale called the Black Eye, which presumably comes after you get Schuylkill Punched.
Tickets're just $35 for outdoor vendor access and two drinks, or $75 for all that plus two more beverages and indoor access with additional street-themed food, which must be good for the stomach -- just look at his!!!
