Food Touring Goes IRL

11 January 2009 2,074 views 6 Comments

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the first ever Food Touring event. It was great to meet some of my online buddies IRL (Mando of Taco Journalism and Morgan Fairchild’s much younger twin, Jen B.).

Some of us met at around 10 a.m. at Flip Happy Crepes to avoid the rush. By 11:15 a.m., the line for these delectable wraps was pretty long.

About 30 of us were on the self-guided tour and we headed out to La-Dee-Dah on S. 1st at around 12:30 p.m. La-Dee-Dah is now going to be serving food out a small window in front and the menu is filled with lots of yummy local snacks. These include flavored popcorn, LovePuppies brownies, s’mores with homemade flavored marshmallows and graham crackers, and much more.

From there we piled into our cars and drove over to Hey Cupcake and shared some sweet goodness in the parking lot. The South Austin Trailer Tour rocked thanks to the awesome service/food and fun company. I also want to thank Adam for creating beautiful and informative brochures to help guide folks to the various trailers.

I’d love to hear your ideas for future food tours. This was too much fun not to do again. Stay tuned….

    It was tons of fun. I’m going to be visiting those crepes a lot.
    Two requests:

    1. Please post the full size photos or at least email them. You’re bad about that.
    2. Please make sure that next time the brochures aren’t printed backwards. It was very disorienting.

    Thanks for putting it together!

    What a morning! This beautiful experience inspired me to buy a bike that very day so that I can scout out new places for the next tour. Great work Jod!!

    Joderz~ :) What a great time I had on the tour! One of my most unique Austin memories so far, and hopefully many more to come. I think I am going to bring the fams to fliphappy crepes when they come. Thanks again for the fun times!
