What Is The Hip Strip Food Roost & When Will It Come To Missoula?
The food has come home to roost.
Or at least, it was scheduled to come home to roost. Now it seems we might be waiting a little while before that roost becomes official.
Have you heard about the Hip Strip Food Roost? Basically, it's a planned weekly event where a small group of food trucks will gather every Monday night at the Missoula Senior Center parking lot, right across the street from The Roxy Theater. It involves food, music, and they'll even have thrift items for sale that you can check out, too.
Sounds cool, right? Well, it seemed like we were going to be able to check it out this week - their Instagram account originally stated that August 9th would be the first day of the Hip Strip Food Roost. In case you haven't noticed, we passed August 9th and there was no sign of the food truck pod - a follow-up Instagram post that it had been postponed due to scheduling conflicts and to "stay tuned for updates."
But their Instagram bio says that the Hip Strip Food Roost will officially start in May 2022 - so maybe they were just trying to put one together before the end of the summer to give people an idea of what it's going to be like? Hopefully we'll find out the answer soon. That parking lot is a great space (we've been heading there this summer for The Roxy Theater's Hip Strip Movie Nights), and this kind of event is perfect for it.
Will you be checking out the Hip Strip Food Roost whenever it does take off?
