Bay, Beer, Trains and Freaks: Food Trucks This Weekend
|We're bringing him as our date for Christmas dinner.|
This weekend's food truck roundups offer high entertainment value with little out of pocket expense. Choose from viewing a beautiful sunset on the bay, hanging out in an antique railroad car, celebrating Oktoberfest, or watching an old time sideshow with a twist.
We're into the free HellzaPoppin Sideshow Revue at the Seminole Casino Hollywood on Saturday, starring the Lizard Man -- just an average guy who's had 700 hours of tattoo work, filed teeth, a split tongue and some subdermal teflon implants done to make him look more and more attractive to you and less to your parents, should you choose to present him as your date for the holidays.
Other acts include a one-armed burlesque dancer, sword swallowers, a wolf-boy (Team Jacob in the house anyone?), and Sylmenstra (who does freaky things with whips and electricity).
This 21-and-over revue has three free shows at 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., so you have plenty of time to grab a nosh at one of 20 food trucks, find a place to squat and enjoy some old-fashioned carny-style freakiness.
