MOFAD Party Cruises Into Brooklyn

MOFAD Party Cruises Into Brooklyn

Cars began clogging the intersection at the corner of Union and Bond Streets last evening around dusk to gawk at what appeared to be a U-Haul trailer made of glass. Atop the transparent truck stood various chefs in formal wear, vigorously cranking an enormous gear before screaming, "Fire in the hole!" And then the chefs--as well as most of the truck--disappeared in a thunderous puff of white smoke that, once settled, revealed a massive blue tarp piled with steaming mounds of ... cereal.

The contraption was actually a 3,200 pound puffing gun originally used to make puffed cereals like Kix in the early 1900s; the machine will be the first exhibit of the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD), which debuts publicly on Saturday at Summer Streets (it'll be in Foley Square from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m.).
