Doug Quint handing out a Big Gay cone, way back in 2009
As you might have suspected, Fork in the Road owes a debt to the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck when it comes to selecting the name for this week’s pop-up food blog, the Big Gay Food Blog. (In turn, we can’t help suspecting that the BGICT’s Doug Quint was inspired by South Park‘s Big Gay Al, but that’s another story.) Anyway, as a salute to the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, we offer below the entire arc of our coverage over the last two years, beginning with an item in our Blogroll Gazette, showing how it’s grown from a one-man, one-truck operation into an entire edible empire. Take a lick!
