GravEyard's polenta poutine, "Something Spicy"-style.

The self-styled "dirty gravy boys" of late-night biscuits and gravy pop-up GravEyard are at it again. From Friday-Sunday, March 22-24, foodslingers Zac Clark and Derek Freitag will open their walk-up window in the Zen Bento storefront on 10th Street from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. during Treefort Music Fest for what they're calling Gravy Fort 2.0.

"I'm doubling everything I have, and I'm opening 30 minutes earlier that usual," said Clark, GravEyard's chef/owner. Usually, the window opens at 9:30 p.m. and shutters at half past 2 in the morning.

GravEyard has offered midnight revelers unconventional flavor combinations since 2017, when it first pedalled its non-traditional biscuits and gravy, mac-and-cheese and polenta poutine to tipsy ghost, ghouls and vampires on the downtown thoroughfare for Halloween. A year and a half later, the pop-up, which flings open its window sporadically on weekends, giving hungry fans a heads up through social media ( and @graveyard208), nearly always sells out by night's end. Clark expects this year's Gravy Fort to be an amplication of, rather than an exception to, that rule.

"We're pretty much running the same menu I always do, because if I add a special I'll probably be overwhelmed," Clark said. "It's pretty crazy because last year the Gravy Fort event only had like 90 interested or going [on social media] and this year I'm up to like 560 or something."

For Gravy Fort 2.0, GravEyard will offer buscuit and gravy combinations like the "Something Spicy" (topped with chorizo and chipotle gravy), plus mac and cheese, and gluten-free and vegan options. For local "B&G" aficionados and adventurous out-of-towners alike, GravEyard is a must-hit spot to curb the hunger pangs brought on by dancing at a midnight concert. Just be sure to get there before the grub is gone.
