Fifteen food trucks will convene in the parking lot of Benjamin Plumbing Supply at 76 E. Sixth St. this Sunday. There will be an emphasis on cold things that take the edge off this lovely summer heat. There will also be food from Jamie's Bitchen' Kitchen, fish tacos from Baja Tacos and many others. Check in over here for more on that.
Sorry for all you non-Facebook users, but the organizers of this event only post their information there and haven't been updating their website with much event info.
These food truck events are great, and I truly hope they continue to evolve and grow and thrive. But let's not forget that there's a food truck festival happening nearly every day along South 12th and Sixth avenues and elsewhere in the city, where food trucks have been a way of life for many decades. Those little taco trucks, raspado stands and hotdog vendors continuously crank out amazing street food that is cheap and delicious.
Check it out sometime. You might be surprised at what you find.
