Food trucks offer a simple option for mobile mealtime, as diners can avoid the messy splatter of foodapults and the puréed sandwiches of large hadron colliders. Sample on-the-go eats with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two tickets to The Food Truck Rodeo at City Roots Farm on Friday, September 23 from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. (a $10 value).
Columbia's mobile eateries will converge upon City Roots Farm for The Food Truck Rodeo's first-ever festival of wheeled fare. Taste buds can wrangle a formidable trio of Southern, Latin, and Mediterranean flavors blended at Alfresco Mobilista's or swing by 2 Fat 2 Fly to savor wings stuffed with ingredients—such as mac 'n' cheese or jambalaya—as unexpected as an 11-month year. Festival-goers can tuck mobile mouths into saucy creations from Bone-In Artisan Barbecue on Wheels or devour cushier bites of between-bun eats from Pawleys Front Porch. A cash bar will un-parch throats with Sierra Nevada brews, Jack's Honey Lemonade, and environmentally packaged Bota Box wines, and the Plowboys will entertain crowds with their live bluegrass ditties and spot-on impressions of Christopher Walken's second cousin, Doug.
