That Food Pod Oct 27th: Per Zoot-a-Thon “Save the Short Bus”

10 Oct

The boys from That Food Truck are teaming up with some of their mobile food friends to do an all out event at their nightly spot at Gay Street and Grant Avenue (new the Grass Skirt and soon to open Hills Market Downtown). The All-Star line up includes: Blu Olive, OH! Burgers, Sophie’s Pierogi, Flat Top Pizza Co, That Food Truck and more to be announced.

That Food Pod will run from 5 to 10 pm. In a nod to all hallows eve there will be trick or treating (or trucking) from truck to truck throughout the night.

Looking at the above, it reads like a typical Food Truck event with a few twists but this one has a special mission. Fellow Food Forter and Mobile food pal Per Zoot has hit a patch of operational bad luck. The Per Zoot truck is out of service due to multiple mechanical issues. If a truck can not move, it can’t serve to earn money, so owner Matt Swint is pursuing other projects in the meantime. His friends wanted to help him out to help save the “the short bus” so that Matt can get Per Zoot back in shape for special events and some weekend work. Tips from each mobile vendor at the PerZootaThon will go to the Save The Short Bus Fund.
