From an email:

“After launching in Virginia earlier this year, Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken is happy to announce that its food truck is now permitted to operate in Washington, DC. The truck’s daily menu features doughnuts (the same flavor offerings served in the store, daily), chicken fingers and fried chicken sandwiches including the Fried Chicken BLT, Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and Old Bay Fried Chicken Sandwich. Beginning today, Wednesday, October 22, the Astro truck will be stationed in Friendship Heights with their friends from Pho Wheels (cancelled due to weather). On Thursday, the truck will be in NOMA and on Friday, it will be back in Virginia in Ballston. For up to the minute locations, follow Astro’s Twitter feed at @astrodoughnuts.”
