Food Truck Bazaars popping up all over Orlando area.

From the Daytona News-Journal:

http://www.news-journalonline.com/lifestyle/food/2012/02/29/food-trucks-go-gourmet-make-way-toward-area.html

Quote
Last March, Central Florida promoter Mark Baratelli seized on the idea of bringing many of the trucks together in a festival atmosphere for regularly scheduled evening or weekend events. His first monthly Food Truck Bazaar in Orlando took place that month. Monthly events since have been added in Kissimmee, Sanford, Casselberry, Oviedo and other locations.

The first Food Truck Bazaar in Volusia County is scheduled 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Lowe's Home Improvement in Orange City. It will be repeated on the first Sundays of April and May, says Flores, who was instrumental in persuading the City Council in Orange City to approve the event on a three-month trial. Baratelli says he'll send 10 to 15 trucks to the inaugural event, and add more for subsequent events if warranted.

A one-time Food Truck Bazaar is scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. March 29 at Port Orange City Center to kick off Port Orange Family Days' four-day Spring Fair.

A Food Truck Bazaar is set to debut March 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. in New Smyrna Beach; it's planned for the fifth Friday of each of the four months that have one in 2012. Liz Yancey, parks and recreation director for the city, which is sponsoring the event, says 15 to 20 trucks are expected and Flagler Avenue will close to traffic to allow patrons to stroll among them.

"It's a family-friendly event based on food," Baratelli says. "I've grown it slowly from one event with eight trucks, taking care to put it in communities I thought would embrace and enjoy it. ... By the end of March, we'll be in 10 cities."

I paid for two VIP tickets the first day this was posted. Do these tickets get mailed to me? I'm not sure how it works. Glad I did this early, though, so I didn't miss out!

When you purchased online, you're name and amount of tickets were automatically added to the event's check in list.  When you show up, just present your name or a copy of your receipt and you're all good.

^Ditto that. I would greatly appreciate two tic as well.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?
