Just sayin'.

Heres whats happening in Beantown and beyond   for people like me who travel by tummy:

August 23-25 
Feast of St Anthony - North End
The Feast of All Feast in the 94th annual North End Fiesta.
The ultimate experience in Italian food and culture and a MAJOR highlight of my summer.
And I "found" a little bit of info about St Anthony himself. Read on to see why that's funny. http://www.stanthonysfeast.com/whois.html

Septmber & October dates and venues below
Best described on their website, "Our goal is not only to introduce communities across the country to the booming phenomenon of gourmet food trucks, but to support the small business owners who run them. We aim to create destination events that feature the trucks and the food they serve. So here we are about to create our 2013 tour of festivals…five pounds heavier than we were when this all began in 2011 but confident that Food. Truck. Fever. is here to stay."
Different vendors for different venues - you could hit two dates and have a unique experience each time. I'm all over this.
