ROXY'S GOURMET GRILLED CHEESE
We'd been hoping someone would finally come along and dethrone Boston Rob as our great state's reality-television rep — and it seems like our prayers might have been answered in the form of edgy grilled-cheese sandwiches. Season 2 of The Great Food Truck Race is set to premiere on Food Network on August 14, and local hot-shit snack truck Roxy's Grilled Cheese is competing for the $100,000 prize. Soon enough, they'll be shoving the Green Muenster (Muenster cheese, bacon, and guacamole) down the nation's collective throat . . . you know, in a good way. But fret not, folks — they won't be gone from their Cleveland Circle home forever. When you spot the truck back, take your sandwich over to Cassidy Playground — a nine-and-a-half-acre refuge from your stuffy office — and tear into your Hillbilly Melt (ham and Swiss with red pepper and red-onion slaw). Go ahead and digest that SOB for 30 minutes, then head over to the Reilly pool for a dip. Never open before noon (amen), but until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays, Roxy's proudly touts the kind of mission statement we should all live by: Bread. Cheese. Rock and Roll.
