It might have been well below freezing in Cleveland last weekend, but more than 1,000 people turned up at Lincoln Park in Tremont, for the 1st C-Town Chow-Down.
Lines were up to 75 people long for items like like pulled pork bahn mi and lobster truffle pierogis, but the longest lines of the day were at the Seti’s Polish Boy truck, where patrons waited for the giant Polish Boys sausages, touted by none other than Cleveland’s own Iron Chef Michael Symon.
“This just shows what kind of food town Cleveland is,” Bryant said, as the pair were handing their steaming boxes of noodles. “It’s 20 degrees and people are waiting 2½ hours for food.”
The event, officially dubbed The C-Town Chowdown: A Culinary Convoy of Cleveland’s Finest Food Trucks, is expected to be a monthly gathering.
It's so cold, maybe Fahrenheit should be Kelvin. (Oops, that's already taken.)
