Chicago Dogs to Debut at Sunday’s Antique Fair


Expect to find some very cool stuff at the Old Town Spring Antique Street Fair. Come early to score the choice items.

If all the stars align—which could be a big “if”—Carpe Vino’s Chicago Hot Dog cart will make its debut in front of the restaurant during Sunday’s Old Town Spring Antique Street Fair. We’ve been working hard to get all the pieces in place, including securing Placer County Environmental Health approval and getting upgrade work on the cart completed in time.  We’re very excited about getting this mini side business off the ground. . .plus I’m Jonseing for one of Chef Alexander’s Chicago dogs.

No matter what, come on down to the historic district on May 21 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the 41st annual Old Town Spring Antiques Fair.  The enclave will be packed with vendors selling real antiques, collectibles, vintage, upcycled and reclaimed items.  The hallmark of this event is vendors are vetted, so very little junque sneaks into the event.

The weather forecast is clear skies and and a high temperature of about 90 degrees.  There will be food vendors will be on the street, and most restaurants will be open (Carpe Vino is closed until 4 p.m. when we roll out our “Memphis ‘Que” special event).

See you in Old Town Sunday!
