Best Street Vendor: Taylor The Rose Guy (Downtown)

Runners Up: Campfire Hotdogs (UT campus), Dale the Hotdog Vendor (Old City), Dave the Hot Dog Guy (Market Square)

He's the enigmatic man who you may have seen walking through the Old City with the gigantic tub of flowers. His braided goatee and flowery shirts make him hard to miss. His name's Taylor. He knows a whole lot about flowers and for a small fee he'll let you pick the one you want, but he prefers you not try to pull it out of the bouquet, that's his job. His reliable presence and varied arrangement of sweet-smelling, multicolored roses has helped many downtown patrons with their late night expressions of affection.
