Tuesday was the day. 

I was going to embark on a journey to get to know more Madison residents while doing the most enjoyable act possible - eating. However the first Meet and Eat and the Villager Mall on Madison's South Side was cancelled due to projected storms

At each Meet and Eat, there three locations in total throughout the summer, Madison food carts and vendors congregate Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 - 7:30 p.m. The event began last year in the Meadowood neighborhood on the Southwest Side and this year the city of Madison and Madison Parks, the sponsors of the events, decided to expand to Villager Mall and St. Paul Lutheran Church on the North Side. 

On summer nights there is nothing like going out for a cheap meal and getting to know people in your community. All it takes is some guts and $5.
