Will Run To Eat…Literally

We have a lot of fun here on this blog with wordplay, double entendre, and of course, puns.  You’d be hard-pressed to find a blog post without at least a little implied double meaning.  As proof, Google finds 22 mentions of the word “pun” in my blog (not counting the 3 in this post)!  What we’re celebrating today, however, is the literal nature of the blog’s name.  The real intersection where running meats meets eating.

When you have a great idea and execute it well, you don’t need any gizmos or gadgets to win people over.  The folks at Coolhaus have done just that with their made-to-order ice cream sandwiches.  Their truck is petite, not much more than a freezer on wheels with a driver seat, but you don’t need much more than that for something as good as what they have to offer.

This food shack shanty stand (?) is nothing to behold.   Situated in an unassuming parking lot of a Vespa store, Bananarchy is easy to miss.  The process is straightforward: choose your size (halfsie or whole), decide what you want it dipped in (chocolate, peanut butter, vanilla, or vegan chocolate), and chose from a long list of toppings.
