Basilica Block Party's food goes upscale
Give it up for the Barrio taco truck!
This weekend's Basilica Block Party begins tonight with a strong music lineup that includes Weezer and Spoon, but fans of good eating also won't be disappointed. As Bridgette Reinsmoen reports in this week's edition of Twin Cities Eater, City Pages' free weekly food newsletter:
The big change is that this year's celebration is remarkably foodie-friendly: The Barrio taco truck will be in attendance. Holy Land will bring falafel sandwiches. You can get frozen passion-fruit drinks from Island Noodles, sushi from Seven, and drinks from Tea Garden. Many of those choices will be available in meal combos priced around $10.
