Imagine living in a place where the imminent return of winter is upon you? And, you only have a few more warm days to soak the sunshine in.

Well that was what I was feeling during my trip downtown St Louis for lunch. It was a cloudy November sky, and a cozy 69 degrees. Sadly, it was the end of Lunch Time Live on Wednesdays, from 11:30 am to 1:30pm.

Lunch Time Live features several food trucks, a live band and a bunch of hungry workers during lunch time. I was excited to see a few black vendors like Juice Masters and Doggie Mac’s by Chef B, lined along 8th St and Locust.

I had gotten the opportunity to grab something from each participating vendor. Doggie Mac’s had a variety of nachos including the buffalo chicken, and Greek Hot Dog, in which I’d enjoyed.

Doogie’s also have Macaroni and cheese dogs, Philly Steak nachos and of many other variety of hot dogs.

Moreover, the other vendor Juice Masters, is a favorite in St Louis. Their health conscious smoothies and shakes are satisfying as well as delicious, some with avocados and vegan fares well too.

I always like to see when the blacks get involved in these sort of ventures. It add variety and quality to the events at hand.

So, unfortunately, this is the last day for the event, due in part to the weather will be changing. It would be nice to see more events such as these that more blacks can be a part of.

You can find Doggie Mac’s by Chef B on Facebook and Twitter. The Juice Masters Fresh Fruit & Smoothies is also on Facebook, and you can catch them on Instagram.

I tried to get more information on were will they both be parked next. They didn’t have time for an interview. However, it was business as usual and they had to earn them dollars.

Another popular food truck by blacks in St Louis, that wasn’t available today. But, the popular Vail’s Brothers are no strangers to the food truck game. They even have a new restaurant in the east Loop area of town. You can pop in and catch them anytime at Vails Brothers Restaurant & Food Truck 5942 Delmar Blvd St. Louis MO 63112.
