FOOD TRUCKS—Yikes, today went a little beyond your average Food Truck Fight. DCist reports that several food trucks were temporarily shut down this afternoon at their usual Farragut Friday gathering. The U.S. Park Police also threatened the vendors with arrest until a Metropolitan Police Department officer intervened. [DCist]

FOOD FIGHTS—And in more food fighting news, Philadelphia Inquirer critic Rick Nichols took a shot at DC's food scene yesterday, saying that the City of Brotherly Love is "head and shoulders above DC or Boston, for example, in variety, aptitude and execution." DCist fights back, claiming Jose Andres for the win against Philly's Jose Garces. Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner pulls out statistics and rankings of top U.S. restaurants and cities to prove Nichols wrong. [Zagat Buzz]

EVENT PLANNINGRocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company is serving up some slightly unusual dishes starting Monday. From March 7-13 at any four of their locations, Rocklands' grills will be firing up dishes from wild boar sausages to snapping turtle chili in addition to their regular menu. You know you've always wanted to try muskrat. [WCP]
