best. event. ever.

The only picture taken before the camera battery died. It was such a cute mini taco.

This weekend was Eat Mobile, an event where 30 different food carts gathered together to give away samples for a small entrance fee under the Morrison bridge. We bought wristbands about 3 weeks early (they sold out a few days before Saturday, but we wanted to be safe) and got in line a half hour before it started, because we are food cart nerds. A couple other friends joined us and we started waiting in line after line to sample things like maple bacon ice cream, korean fusion tacos, and waffle sandwiches. Picture the most amazing sample day at Costco (for me, July 4 2009--two words, hot dogs) and replace those smiling old ladies and frozen burritos with tattooed (generally) chefs handing you gourmet, sometimes very unusual (grilled peanut butter, bacon and jalapeno sandwich?) food for 2 hours. The 20 or so different foods mixing in my stomach caused a chemical reaction that needed about 7-8 Tums to soothe, but it was absolutely worth the burn. Already looking forward to 2011 (without a heartburn causing, stomach-shrinking baby in my belly).

Speaking of belly inhabitants, can I just mention that this little guy is bound to make his appearance in about a month and a half? Ummm, wha....?
