Food Trucks Don’t Race… They War

Fantasy worlds are warring for our gastronomic attention! The office just got word that the Starz Network’s upcoming sword-and-sorcery show Camelot is also zipping around New York City this week giving out free food. (And, um, as you can see in the above photo found on I’m Not Angry, This Is My Relaxed Expression…there are wenches.)

We are eager to see this play out even further. Can BBC America send a Merlin food truck? Can Ned Stark and King Arthur do battle on top of the Empire State Building? (Or at the offices? The Flatiron has a very dramatic roof.) Where will they fit the Round Table? Times Square? Should the Iron Throne be seated at City Hall, or atop the Brooklyn Bridge?

For the Camelot truck, the schedule is as follows:

Today, Thursday March 31

2:45 – 3:45: Times Square (44th/Broadway)
4:15 – 5:30: Grand Central (E 44th/Park) Met Life Building

Tomorrow, Friday April 1

11:30 – 12:30: Meatpacking: (13th/9th, Chelsea Piers)
1:00 – 2:15: Battery Park City (Vesey/River Terrace & Wall St./Liberty St)
2:45 – 3:45: Hudson/W. 11th near Magnolia Bakery
4:15 – 5:30: Cooper Sq. (7th/Lafayette)

For the Game of Thrones truck, the schedule is as follows:

Today, Thursday March 31

West 4th St (near the subway stop)

Tomorrow, Friday April 1

Well, we have to guess, since they won’t announce it on Twitter until tomorrow. But they haven’t hit up Times Square or Bryant Park up yet.

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of and is aware it may be missing a golden opportunity to be the world’s first fantasy-themed food rocket.
