When I learned The Hitch was going to be a venue for MR Fest, I was beyond excited. The Hitch is a food-truck lot that has six different trucks. Ranging from Colombian food to BBQ; anyone can satisfy their cravings there. The Hitch is a perfect venue for MR Fest because the best thing to have along with music is food.

El Sabor de mi Terra is like taking a trip to Colombia. With authentic options, it’s not hard to understand why the truck’s name translates to “the taste of my land.” If you’ve wanted to explore a new type of cuisine, then El Sabor de mi Terra is the one for you.

If you’ve never had sweet potato marshmallow fries, you might be living the wrong life. Although it sounds like an odd combination, Patty Wagon’s dessert is a treat to enjoy.

If you feel like you’re in the mood for savory food, you should visit Smoked Out BBQ. With an array of options, it can feel like 4th of July any day of the year.

Should your dog decide that it too wants to come out and enjoy some tunes, you should visit Mambo Freeze or WANderLust. Each truck offers different treats for your pup so they don’t go hungry while you’re having a good time.

St. Pita’s has some “heavenly good” food, and their ingredients are all natural. Stop by this local favorite to taste divine pitas and fresh food.

Most of the food trucks have rotating menus because they use ingredients from the season, so every time you visit, there is a possibility that you can try something new. There is also a covered eating area for you to sit down relax and enjoy some good music. The Hitch will feature five bands during MR Fest, including The Cover Letter and Ooni.

2 -2:45- Christian Sparks and the Beatnik Bandits

3-3:45- Ooni

4-4:45- The Cover Letter

5-5:45- Evan Tapia

6-6:45- The Mammoths

By Kristin Russell Music Journalist Crawling under the warm duvet of the bed, blinds drawn, door closed, lights off, headphones in and the volume is louder than it needs to be. The world is turned off, you've completely checked out of the universe and into your own brain, into your own thoughts. It doesn't matter what emotion are being felt, or even repressed, what matters is how the feeling is […]
