Food fest called off due to Occupy Boston tent city

Quote:
The sprawling Occupy Boston encampment in downtown has forced the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy to call off a food fest long planned for this weekend.

The “Greenway Mobile Food Fest” set for Saturday has been canceled and won’t be held until the spring, the conservancy announced today.

“Saturday’s event was to include 12 mobile food vendors, many of them in large trucks. It was to take place on Dewey Square, the only parcel large enough to accommodate this type of gathering,” the conservancy said today in a release.


POSTPONED Greenway Mobile Food Fest

Quote:
The decision is based on the fact the attendees we’re anticipating for the Greenway Mobile Food Fest, when combined with the Occupy Boston encampment on Dewey Square, would simply be too crowded to be considered safe for the public.

ocal food trucks park on the Greenway for an urban celebration of the fall harvest. Try Boston’s best street food while you picnic in the park and revel in the delights of fall.

Featuring:
- Fall Harvest Cook Off (vendors compete to create the tastiest pumpkin themed dish)
- Local Chef judge panel announces Greenway Mobile Food Fest – “Pumpkin Prize”
- Performances by local bands
- Farm-fresh seasonal produce
- Backyard games (bocce, croquet, ladder ball, baggo)
- Kid zone with fall themed crafts and activities
- Cast your tweet for favorite food truck @hellogreenway
- Canned food drive to support Greater Boston Food Bank

Okay there it is at the end. You are the master of suspense, friend. The whole time I was like "where's the food drive for the poor?" and then, BOOM! There it was. Kudos.

The title reminds me of magic...you read the crazy description of the effect, only to find out the description is a huge exaggeration of what the trick is.

Conservatives are grasping at anything to stop the revolution before it comes and gets them. Smile

I've heard that the #OWS protesters are getting enough food donations that they're able to hand out meals to the local homeless.

That's certainly the case in New York. The encampment basically has free food for lunch and dinner most days for anyone that passes by. And you don't even have to go to a prayer service first. Smile
