I am so sorry to do this to you all, but life will pull a fast one every now and again! Due to the extreme heat forecasts (my weather app is now telling me we are looking at 102 degrees today!), we are going to have to throw in the towel for a little while. We will be CLOSED this week, and then closed again next week while I cater some very dear friends' wedding. We will try our absolute best to return with full force from this 2-week hiatus on Thursday, August 13th.

I truly apologize if this is frustrating and disappointing. Please understand, our little toaster oven of a food cart becomes unsafe and often inoperable in extreme heat. Thank you so much for bearing with us as we muscle through a tough summer. Fall couldn't come soon enough for me! But in the meantime, I hope your days are spent cooling off at the river, and I hope your counters are full of peaches and heirloom tomatoes, and your fridges packed with watermelon and blueberries! And corn. All my gratitude to you wonderful people!

Closed Until Thursday, 6/4

Hello, everybody!  Thank you all so much for keeping us busy, even with our pared down menu.  We broke our record two days in a row last week!  We are grateful, and we are tuckered out.  We will be taking a much needed break this week to give the cart a deep clean, repair some broken things, and relax.  The cart will re-open Thursday, June 4th, for two more weeks of our smaller menu.  After that, we will be back in full force.  Thanks again, and we'll see you all soon!
