This past Sunday I had my first ever event/vending experience on my cart. It was for my daughters 2nd birthday. I served about 30 dogs and a vegan dog. I felt pretty comfortable once I got rolling so it wasn't too bad. Reminded me of my high school days of working in a nursing home kitchen and serving slop out of steam tables. ha.
 
My pulled pork dog (the  Pig Pile) was a huge hit. It's a dog topped with pickles, bbq pulled pork and onion crunch. Its mostly what the adults wanted. Kids went plain or a mac n cheese topped hot dog. Only  served 3 chili cheese dogs. 
 
All in all I think it was a great way to break the ice. My cash cow with a double steamer from bens carts ran great and I was able to fix a small water leak I noticed at the same time. Now I can't wait to get out there and actually make some cash!
