This is why I’m excited whenever a truck, limited by the capacity of its kitchen and size of its menu, pushes something decidedly vegetarian friendly.
If you're visiting Goodale Park this weekend for ComFest, expect more vegan and organic foods than ever before. Festival organizers made a point to focus on local vendors this year, says longtime organizer Connie Everett, ensuring there is no shortage of clean, natural foods.

A few weeks after quietly opening its doors to the public, Delaware's second microbrewery, Restoration Brew Worx, hosts its grand opening today. The 70-seater Sandusky Street brewpub opens at 4 p.m., with food service starting at 5 and the new house porter being tapped at 6:30.
