The Thursday night food truck round-up known as Culinarium, which launched last week is being cancelled due to lack of permits. The food court was the first of its kind locally in that it featured live music and booze at Villa 221 (221 NE 17th Street). Organizer Richard Hales of Sakaya Kitchen and Dim Ssäm à gogo food truck told Short Order that he will not be organizing trucks there on January 27.
You can still visit one of the meet-ups organized by Hales on Saturday at the Wynwood Food Truckers Meetup on NW 22 Lane and NW 2 Ave. from 6 to 11 p.m.
