Sitting at Spints
It's no secret that food carts are the hot items du jour all across the country. Cities across the nation are passing new rules to encourage their proliferation, and blogs tout the latest pods popping up in former trash-strewn parking lots and vacant corners. Some popular carts are even spawning "Son of…" spin-offs that allow owners to expand offerings without crowding items off their regular menus.
Spints Alehouse the other day for just such a sit-down between errands, ordered from a list of impressive brews on draft and in the bottle, then waited a few minutes for happy hour to begin at the very civilized hour of 4 pm. Pictured in the photo, top, is the meat smorgasbord with cured albacore, ham and pork rillette with zucchini pickles and poppyseed flatbread, at the very happy price of $10. And, at least on the day we were there, they had their house sausage and pepper (right) for just a buck!
