So, a tipster e-mailed Grub Street with a Craigslist link advertising a food truck for sale, all for a mere $25,000. The food truck Deep Throat speculated that it's Staff Meal, and we can confirm it's true. Say goodbye to Staff Meal on wheels ... and buy it yourself, if so inclined. Reads the cryptic CL ad: "Award winning food truck for sale in Boston! Customized to allow for permitting within the Boston food truck program. Was one of the very first trucks permitted in the city. We've used this truck to win several Best Of awards in the city, as well as received countless mentions in national publications." Of course, we had to investigate further. Could this really be the end?
We reached out to our pals there and received this Boyz to Men ditty in response (thanks for reminding us of our 6th grade graduation ceremony!), followed by this e-mail: "The old girl has been very good to us over the last couple of years, but her time has come. It's time for her to spread her wings and fly like a glorious peacock, into the arms of the next mobile food vendor."
But now, the happy news: As we reported previously, they're sussing out permanent locations, so stay tuned! Won't it be nice to eat a Hurricane Irene burrito in comfier environs?
