Getting Saucy: The Local Meatball Cart Launches Saturday, Connecticut Rejoices

18 Apr

From The Local Meatball’s FB Page

We broke the news about the saucy balls of Michael DiStassio back on March 9 and here we are telling you where you can get your first tastes.  Yes, we told you 4/20, but now we’ve got the location and time, too.  They’ll be plopping down on Unquowa Road from 12:30-2:30 just up the hill right by where the northbound train lets out.  He’ll be there rain or shine, but it looks it will be reaching around 60 with just a few clouds in the sky.

By the way, make sure you’ll following Michael and The Local Meatball on Facebook and Twitter.  He’s giving special insight into the meatballs such as this factoid (which Dan guessed correctly, earning him a sandwich):  he has eaten 350 meatballs in preparation for the opening.  That’s a whole lotta devotion!

For more info, make sure to check out our original post about The Local Meatball, how it’s a farm-to-table kind of experience, and what you can order.
