Joey Fatone’s hot dog food truck is coming to Plant City this weekend

We're still a few weeks from Justin Timberlake's nearly sold-out concert in Tampa. Until then, you'll have to make do with Joey Fatone's hot dogs in Plant City.

Timberlake's 'N SYNC bandmate has a burgeoning wiener empire in Orlando, Fat One's Hot Dogs and Italian Ice, and last weekend it sent Fatone himself and a food truck to Keel and Curley Winery for the annual Blueberry Festival.

As noted by Creative Loafing, Fatone hung out at the truck, snapping photos, signing autographs and dishing out chili cheese dogs.

"Had the best time at the Blueberry Festival last weekend!" Fat One's tweeted Tuesday.

If you, like us, are kicking yourself for missing Fatone's first food-truck visit to Tampa Bay, you'll have one more chance, as Fat One's will be back at Keel and Curley from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday.

But don't pin all your hopes on meeting Fatone at the event.

"They're going to be out here for sure; the food truck is killer," said Michelle Powers, Keel and Curley's events executive. "But as far as him coming out and cooking again in it, I haven't been given the official word, but I would take a guess that he probably is not going to be."

But you never know. Either way, Powers said Fat One's might be sending a food truck to Timberlake's May 15 concert in Tampa. Can you say possible 'N SYNC reunion?
