Hot Dog joint #99. Little Miss and I went to the 2nd Annual Framingham Food Truck Festival Saturday in search of my 99th different hot dog establishment. Boston Super Dogs, a Food Truck Festival regular, was on hand. Since I visited there last fall (formerly named Boston Speed’s Famous Hot Dog Wagon), it wouldn’t count as #99. We’ll be visiting Boston Super Dogs again soon, just not on this day.

Kismet Catering, run by Joan Spinazola, fit the bill.  Spinazola, a long time Natick native, spent 25 years in Las Vegas as a stand up comic. Now, she’s offering up her deadpan delivery on a bun with mustard relish and onions out of a shiny stainless steel trailer. We stopped by as the trucks were setting up and let Joan know we would be dining there, but we wanted to check out the scene first. Besides,  she had to put on her lipstick!

Little Miss liked the X-Box WAAF had set up in their info booth. I managed to wrangle a free tee shirt out of them!

I wanted to make the rounds at the Food Truck Festival, but it was awfully hard dragging Little Miss away from that X-Box! Thanks a lot, WAAF!

Jo “JoAnimal”  Schmalenberger from Beyond Fitness was on hand. She’s been keeping my kids bouncing for close to 20 years!

She has been taking her fun fitness program on the road with the Food Truck Festivals to provide an outlet for any kids in attendance and to give folks an opportunity to work off some of that good chow on hand.

Charlie Sisitsky, from the Framingham Board of Selectman, was on hand once again. Charlie never met a food truck he didn’t like! To his credit, he promised the Framingham Food Truck Festival would be an annual event and he did his part to make sure that happened.

Charlie and Marie Ainger, Food Truck Festival organizer, kicked off the Framingham Food Truck Festival with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. And with that, the Framingham Food Truck Festival was officially under way!

The Trucks

A Food Truck Festival wouldn’t be anything without the Food Trucks! There were more than a dozen trucks on hand, offering a wide variety of cuisine.

Little Miss and I strolled around to check out each truck. The festival filled up quickly as people queued up to buy tickets and lines formed at the trucks.

Boston Super Dog (formerly Boston Speed’s) was cranking out half pound plus all beef franks and ruining the appetites of many a food truck patron. These hot dogs aren’t only good, they’re freakin HUGE!

It was a fun and fantastic day. I for one hope the Framingham Food Truck Festival is an annual event for many years to come!

I enjoy traveling and eating hot dogs wherever I am. I like to sample the local variations of America's favorite encased meat and discovering the stories behind the hot dog, the vendor, and the regional preferences.
