TAMPA, FL (Feb. 21, 2013) – MOSI is hosting a Food Truck Madness event, featuring ‘MythBusters After Dark’ on Friday, Feb. 28, from 6 to 10 p.m. This event will be the first chance for Tampa-area residents and visitors to see MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition at night.

Can you dodge a paintball? Can you drive a car blindfolded? Does toast always tend to land butter-side down? Does running in the rain get you less wet than walking?

Then, they can enjoy a live myth busting stage show that will have their hearts and minds racing.
