Tasty Tuesdays


A rotating roster of the best food trucks in Orlando gather in the back parking lots of The Milk Bar-Etoile Boutique, Spacebar-Sandwich Bar, and The Nook every Tuesday night. The entrance to the parking lot is between the Iron Cow and C and C Dental Lab in The Milk District on Robinson Street, east of Bumby, right across from the T.G. Lee Milk Factory. A new mural of cows is going up on the T.G. Lee. It seems the Milk District is doing some good work to revitalize this neighborhood.

Pam Schwartz looked for a deal among the food trucks while I worked on this sketch of glass blowers who were demonstrating their craft. We were there a bit late since we came from another event. Unfortunately the lines were really long and by the time Pam got to the front of any of the lines she was in, the food truck was out of the item she wanted to try. She decided to get me a shrimp quesadilla...which they didn't have the sauce or most of the toppings for, and decided she would pass.This has happened before. I don't understand why food trucks can not stock adequately to meet demand at these types of events especially when they do it every week.

The two glass blowers were working beside 2422 East Robinson Street, which I  believe was a smoke shop. The beads of glass glowed like a meteor entering the Earth's atmosphere. A full moon added to the atmosphere.

Tasty Tuesdays is in the Milk District every Tuesday night from 6:30 - 10pm. Go early or you might not get to eat.


Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld@gmail.com
