The Second Saturday Wynwood Artwalk food truck roundup is still one of the most successful and well attended events in Miami.

Each month, thousands of people gather for a little street food sustenance and shopping at local crafts vendors before of after heading out to peruse the galleries that stay open for both serious art collectors and casual observers.

But last month, the lot on 210 NW 22nd Lane which houses the roundup was quiet. The event, made lively by laughing families, DJ's, and live musical performances, was cancelled due to a tipster informing zoning officials that organizer Richard Hales permit was stuck somewhere in the slow-moving cogs of the City of Miami Zoning Department.

At the time, Hales told Short Order that the property on NW 22nd Lane had changed ownership and that he had to re-apply for an event permit. Hales was confident that the April event would happen, with Hales having secured a permit by then.

With April's Second Saturday Art Walk just a few days away, some two

dozen or so food trucks and craftspeople are on standby. Musical bands

are waiting for a call or text that they have a gig. Facebook messages

and Tweets were sent out. Short Order received a press notice that

Hatuey Beer was bringing a promotional mini-truck to the event. Only

thing is -- there is no event yet because there is no permit....yet.

Short

Order spoke with Hales, who told us that as of this minute there will

be no roundup on Saturday without an event permit. He said he's hoping the permit arrives in time for the roundup, but would not

confirm a list of food trucks or vendors.

Short Order will update this post when we receive confirmation of the event.
