9 Sep

NUGGGGSSSS!!! Photo given courtesy of Chicken Joe’s.

Just last week Chicken Joe’s started serving their wildly popular options like the Baby Special (1/4 lb. chicken nuggets w/ fries and soda), High School Special (1/2 lb. nugs), and College Wrap (nugs, cones, American cheese, honey mustard) right out of their brand-spanking new food truck. Oh, and you could say that people have already caught on. For their first two days serving up food in Greenwich, they sold out! 

Look for them around the Greenwich area and all across Westchester. Also, be on the lookout for them as they serve some nugs, cones, wraps, and more at festivals like Adopt-a-Dog and the Holiday Stroll in Greenwich. Follow the truck here or visit their brick and mortar restaurants here.

From Trash to Treasure: the Food Trucks at Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market

22 Jul

Considering Kristien’s obsession with all things HGTV, it’s a surprise it took us so long to get to the Elephant’s Trunk Country Flea Market. This massive market every Sunday in New Milford features antiques, rare finds, farm stands, and anything you’d need to furnish a home. Sure, you have to rummage through some trash to get to the treasures, but that’s part of the fun. In fact, there are so many food trucks at this flea market every Sunday, they sort of work the same way. They have lots of smaller carts and stands serving up hot dogs, lemonade, Italian ices, and breakfast sandwiches that could be hidden treasures, and they have some of the food trucks we’re all heard of that might not be as much of a treasure as you’d hoped. So we’re going to break down our trash and treasure food truck finds for you so you don’t have to rummage. We got your back! Continue reading
