A planet on the side of the MIT truck

By Lucia August 17, 2012

Last night we showed the original Star Trek on the side of the truck. Ryan (a customer) suggested the movie. I think this was taken right after everyone started cheering for the first time. Over the course of the movie there were a bunch more times when people were cheering. This was so great for us to see.

You can see picnic boxes on the ground there. This is an idea we’ve been piloting at movie nights. We’ve pre-sold a set amount of these, and when customers show up, we start putting them together. Choice of sandwich, choice of side (we did gazpacho soup, spicy broccoli salad, or fries), and a drink (melon agua fresca, iced tea, hibiscus), packed into a picnic box.

If you came to this, let us know what you thought. And if you didn’t make it, there’s going to be another movie night next Thursday at the MIT truck. You can pre-order your picnic boxes here. It’s Jaws, so I can’t guarantee there will be as much cheering. ..
