The Local Meatball Expands Meaty Empire with Second Truck

22 Jul

Mike DiStassio’s The Local Meatball has seen lots of success even though he’s only been ballin’ for just three months.  He has sold out of balls while being parked in Fairfield and various events throughout the state, and he’s been to lots of parties along the way.  But, running out of his meatballs might soon become a thing of the past with the creation of Grinder, aka “Big Ball,” their Red Nissan Cargo Van.  They’ll be able to take out Big Ball to festivals and keep the crowds fed while Little Ball can hit up smaller stops like the Fairfield transit station.

And, he has also taken Two Roads Brewery by storm.  Perhaps the best way to show Mike and co’s devotion to the art of the meatball is their first day at Two Roads.  Yeah, it was raining like crazy, but they just put up their umbrella and pushed through the day.  Emily of Two Roads told us during out last visit that she was amazed to see how many people came and had some meatballs despite the rain.  And, wouldn’t you know it, The Local Meatball was there when we visited recently.  Although we were a bit disappointed with the Serious Balls (their original Saugatuck Craft Butchery beef) the first time around, we tried them this time and they were excellent.

Congratulations on all your success!
