PopShop Market sprang up on 6/1 at Fairfield Theatre Company like magic.  One day there was a parking lot, but soon an entire market had appeared.  Not only where there great shops involved, food trucks and local restaurants got involved.  This same basic formula is being reapplied to the PopShop Market in New Haven on 8/18 from 11-5 pm at the Shops at Yale (30 Broadway).  Entrance is free, so get eating and get shopping…

Two Roads Brewery + Food Trucks = Weekend Fun!

25 Feb

Some of the old factory mixed with the brewery at Two Roads Brewing Company

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood

and I, I took the one that lead to the brewery

and that has brought me all the hops and barley in the world.

-Robert Frosty Mug

We heard about Two Roads Brewing a while ago and were happy when they opened up in December. But, because they are in Stratford and we were in Greenwich, we weren’t sure when we could travel out there. Well, as a stroke of pure genius, we decided to break up an annoying drive to Ikea to return some glöreögköps  and kröakelörigöbrigs (sp?) with a trip to Two Roads.

After checking in, Kristien contemplates what to order at Fryborg food truckIt’s pretty easy to get to, just past Bridgeport and right off exit 31. And, parking wasn’t too hard to get even though it was packed. We rushed out of our car because we were dying of hunger and Fryborg (RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!), a food truck serving up french fries, sandwiches, natural sugar sodas, and other fried goodness was there. We knew that we wanted fries, but what kind and variation?

  1. Dutch Fries with a mound of fries topped with curry ketchup, mayo, and minced onion?
  2. BLT Fries with hand-cut fries topped with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, chopped bacon, and mayo?
  3. Italian Fries with crispy fries topped with pesto mayo, tomato, and Pecorino cheese?
  4. Bacon, Egg & Cheese Fries with Belgian style fries topped with a fried egg, melted American cheese, and bacon?
  5. Assimilation Fries with golden brown fries topped with a fried egg, American cheese, 1000 island dressing, and onion?
  6. Chili Cheese Fries with our delicious fries topped with truck-made chili and cheddar cheese?
