Boy has COVID been a cruel beast to so many people- Hillsboro residents have not been spared. When we see businesses all over the City closing their doors our collective hearts break. People are hanging on tough to keep going and somedays we all wonder if we can keep it all together.
The simpler things in life have taken on greater meaning; more importance. A case in point for me was yesterday. I have put in at least 60 hours this week and it is only Friday and I work weekends too. Hungry I dropped in on Main Street where I often find my friend Larry and his fantastic yellow food truck that he rides like a trusty steed around our city feeding the masses. His Boro Burger business is a combination of heart, soul, high caliber beef, and spices. If you have not had- well let’s just say you have not lived.
I knew something was up in the vacant lot to the East (right) of Hillsboro Bar and Grill and yesterday I found out. Larry is going to be bringing the Hillsboro community it’s first-ever Food Cart Pod. This will be a clean and safe secured environment where several food carts will be housed producing a variety of delectable eats. Yesterday Evergreen Fence was there putting up classy metal fences. To follow will be tents, tables, and outdoor lights, and clean portable bathrooms. By January 1 the goal is to have food being served up in open-air so we all can enjoy a great meal properly spaced with fresh air all around.
Beyond that, the historic feel and fun vibe of 4th and Main will complement what Larry has in mind. Art, music, food, and friends will gather at Carts On Main which will add to the group of eateries in old town making it more of a destination than it already is!
What a great idea- what a great name- and with Larry and Boro Burger at the helm we can’t lose! The Hillsboro Herald and our staff look forward to being regulars and we thank you all for your support- we will keep the stories coming so please share us and like us on your favorite social media sites!
