I love cars. I’m also a fan of British cars particularly Aston Martin. From these facts, you might correctly deduce that I like James Bond. So you can imagine how excited I was to read that all of these loves will come together on the streets of downtown Alpharetta this Saturday for the Great British Car Fayre.
All the of best cars from across the pond will be on display including the Lotus Esprit driven by Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me. Now I’m not positive it’s the one that turns unto a submarine, but if it is, I’ll be taking it down the Chattahoochee. There will family fun, the cars, a Beatles Tribute band and food.
The food is what really caught my attention. There will be some local food from Smokejack along with several very intriguing food trucks selling their wares. Among the ones confirmed are Sweet Auburn BBQ, the Mobile Marlay, W.O.W! Food Truck, Mighty Meatballs, Yum Yum Cupcakes, and the Pretzelmaker.
It will be interesting to see how the crowd divides between the local Smokejack and the outsider Sweet Auburn BBQ.
The Mobile Marlay keeps with the theme by serving fish and chips. But the one truck that most interests me is the W.O.W truck with various bowls full of brisket, pork, potatoes, grits and “kicky sauce”.
The weather’s not predicted to be very good for Saturday, but that’s nothing new for the Brits. You can find me out there stuffing my face from the food trucks and drooling over all the beautiful machines. Worst James Bond ever.
