Dayton’s newest food truck — actually, it’s a converted short school bus — will introduce itself to the community tonight, Oct. 4, at Levitt Pavilion in downtown Dayton.
The mobile unit is called Billie Gold Bubble Tea and it is being launched by Nicole Cornett, co-owner of Cloak & Dagger Tattoo Studio in Dayton and of a Salon Lofts salon in the Town & Country shopping center in Kettering, and her husband, Britton Asbury, co-owner of the tattoo studio.
Cornett says on the food truck’s Facebook page that she has been a fan of bubble tea since high school, and wants to share the bubble-tea experience with others in the Dayton area.
The debut will happen at 7 p.m. today at a Levitt Pavilion concert featuring the The Dayton Funk All-Stars. The concert is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Fifth and Main streets.
Billie Gold Bubble Tea will offer a variety of bubble-tea beverages, including a signature drink called the Rose Gold, described in a release as “a sweet and refreshing coconut milk tea” with rose, tapioca balls and cold-brew coffee from Press coffee shop in Dayton.
Treats from Cakes By Cookie will be available for purchase, including a pastry that is similar to a vegan Twinkies. Most Billie Gold items are vegan and gluten-free friendly, its founders said in a release.
On Saturday night Oct. 6, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., Billie Gold Bubble Tea will serve its specialties at the Cloak & Dagger Tattoo Studio at an INTO ART “out of the darkness walk” fund-raiser and event to fight suicide. From noon to 10 p.m., Cloak & Dagger tattoo artists will offer flash art tattoos for $50, with a portion of the proceeds going to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Tattoo recipients also will receive a voucher for a Billie Gold Bubble Tea beverage. A portion of all Billie Gold sales that evening will also go to the foundation.
