St. Patty's Brickell Takeover

St. Patrick's Day completely took over Brickell last night. Waking up for working this morning was not in the least enjoyable...guess that's part of the holiday. We started at Tobacco Road which lucky for me is just steps away from my apartment. There was no way I was missing 20 food trucks in one place. The crowd slowly trickled in and by 10pm the place was slammed. We went from truck to truck ordering odds and ends from Dim Saam a Go Go's mouthwatering brussel sprouts to Jefe's flavorful fish tacos. One of my girlfriend's tried the Grilled Harvest from Ms Cheezious. When I asked her what she thought her response was "Is it an apple pie, is it a grilled cheese or is it both?" Translation: incredible.

Must say though, the truck that got the most rave reviews was CheeseMe. You'll see some pics below of my friends chowing down...that was in front of CheeseMe.  I did not try them but I heard the short rib sliders were out of this world.

After a good three hours of gorging on greasy food and filling up on green beer (which by the way Tobacco Road, $5 a pop is a little hefty, don't ya think) we rallied by Mary Brickell Village where the crowd was jamming to a fun U2 cover band.

All in all, great time! Good job Brickell. You definitely gave the Gables a run for its money.
