Food Truck Thursday, April 26 in Mount Pleasant

Food trucks near Metro Center
Food trucks! These mobile restaurants are in and around DC's downtown on a daily basis. 99% of my food truck visits are Monday-Friday, at lunch time. I've encountered them in other settings, but rarely. You may see a lunch time truck in Friendship Heights, or a weekend truck near Eastern Market. But for the most part, downtown lunch is where it's at.

In a few weeks though, several trucks will make the trip to Mount Pleasant, selling food "after hours." April 26 will be the first (of many?) Food Truck Thursdays in Mount Pleasant.

So far, three trucks have signed on -- our friends at Fojol Bros, Mt P regulars Pleasant Pops, and the PORC truck. There may be additional trucks by that time, too. (Personally, I would love to see Takorean!) The trucks will be adjacent to Lamont Park, at the corner of Lamont and Mount Pleasant Sts NW. They'll be serving from about 5:30PM until 8:30PM, the after-work and dinner hours.

Here's the Facebook event page where you can "RSVP." Either way, let's try to make a good show of it; perhaps we'll be able to do this again.
