Love Central Market but hate the parking lot? Now the gourmet grocer is taking its popular kitchen creations on the road in Houston.

The Houston store is debuting a new food truck this fall, dubbed the Central Market Roadie. Details are scarce, but the new food truck Twitter account describes the operation as “fresh, fast Central Market food with a changing menu and specials.”

This won’t be Central Market’s first mobile unit. The Fort Worth store debuted the “Herban Eatery Assault Truck,” or H.E.A.T, in February. The HEAT serves up a changing menu of gourmet burgers and fries at the Central Market patio during weekly live music performances, attends community events like Fort Worth South’s “First Friday on the Green” and also houses a catering operation that can be rented for corporate events or private parties.

It was a swell crowd that danced in the shadow of the pyramids Saturday night as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston raised a pharaoh’s ransom in greenbacks at the Grand Gala Ball, this year themed an “Egyptian Fantasy” in honor of the upcoming King Tutexhibition.

While Cleopatras preened in the spotlight and soaring palm trees swayed in the flow of the air-conditioning in the museum’s Law building, a heavy-hitter contingent totalling 450 partied against a backdrop of the iconic Egyptian pyramids and the Temple of Luxor, presented in practically life-sized projections.
