Planet Word February 23, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Travel & Leisure, Word Play, Writing & Writers.

For those of you with a love of linguistics . . . Planet Word is on the horizon.

And admission will be FREE!

D.C.’s Franklin School Will Be A Museum of Linguistics

And there is a line of handy dandy Food Trucks outside for inevitable snack attacks in the stacks!

Aah . . . that’s better!

For more about Planet Word: A Message from the Founder

Very cool! Thanks for sharing, Nancy. Boy, food trucks sure have come a long way….we used to call them “the Roach Coach.” 🙂

Food Trucks are BIG business these days . . . with delicious and nutritious on-site offerings.

I had forgotten that they used to be called “the Roach Coach.” 😀

2. Kate Crimmins - February 23, 2017

Food trucks make everything better, even linguistics.

nrhatch - February 23, 2017

The museum isn’t scheduled to open until 2019, but it sounds like it will be full of word play.

And what goes better with play than food!

3. L. Marie - February 23, 2017

That’s great!
I discovered some lovely food trucks in Austin, Texas. Such an eclectic mix of foods.

Food trucks are great for festivals, street fairs, flea markets, and street corners ~ especially when chock full of comfort food.

And the lack of overhead keeps prices low.

This sounds like a delicious combo to me, a word nerd and a foodie. When’s the road trip?

The Winter of 2019. 😀

Sounds like a great combination, Nancy. Jill made me laugh and shudder, with the “Roach Coach.” 😯

Andrew Zimmern’s Food Truck might be a real Roach Coach ~ I can see him (and others) trying to capitalize on the fact that more people are eating insects as a form of sustainable protein. 😀

Some of these food vans are awesome now – I remember the Roach Coach. Haaa, those were the days 😉 Planet World would be a great setting for a movie or novel when it opens.

nrhatch - February 23, 2017

We can call it The War of the Words!

diannegray - February 24, 2017

Excellent! 🙂

7. Debra - February 28, 2017

What a find this is! I hadn’t heard of it but I sure do hope I can visit one day! Food trucks are an amazing find anywhere, aren’t they?

nrhatch - March 1, 2017

Planet Word is still on the drawing board, with a planned opening in 2019, but it’s a great use for a gorgeous building.

Food Trucks are a great adjunct to street fairs, festivals, beer gardens, and city sidewalks. Food = Good!
