Phew! What a great way to kick off the season. For those of you that came out, thank you so much. Those of you that didn’t… it’s okay we forgive you. There are plenty of future Trailer Food Tuesdays to hit up.
As some of you may know, Trailer Food Tuesdays was lucky enough to obtain the support of Real Ale Brewing Company for Season 3 of the event. Additionally, the wonderful Whole Foods is back supporting and the event even welcomed PayPal! Much like it’s sponsor backing, the food truck line-up was a home run for the Season 3 Kick Off.
There were some classics rearing and ready to return for the season including The Peached Tortilla who offered a banging $5 deal via PayPal. Next to them was the all-fabulous Whole Food Truck. The likes of Chi’Lantro, CoolHaus, Kebabalicious, Tapas Bravas were also there.
There were some great veterans amongst the crowds as well. Fullhouse BBQ was sporting a brand new trailer wrap and looking F-R-E-S-H. Their affordable and quick menu made them an instant favorite amongst the local eaters. ALC Steaks also came back for more this season along with Mister Fruitcup!
The event threw some new names into the mix with Svante’s Stuffed Burgers, Gonzo Juice and Burro Cheese Kitchen. These guys did an awesome job for a first-time event. There were little tweaks to be made, but I’m confident that they were surprised by the turnout. The Via 206 [Sourdough, Cheddar, Gruyere & Balsamic Apricot Fig] was ridiculous and the Waylon & Willie [Sourdough, Aged Cheddar, Fontina, Caramalized Onion, Pepperocinis, + Spicy Maple Bacon Sauce] was definitely a mouthful. I have to say, it was the best damn grilled cheese I’ve ever had.
In line with previous events, Trailer Food Tuesdays sported an amazing band. Rosie and the Ramblers did everything from yodle to sing a song about a minivan. This was particularly amazing since I may or may not have made a smart ass comment upon their arrival when a minivan rolls onto the terrace, rolls down the window and says “Hey, we’re with the band”. I couldn’t help myself but reply, “Such a bad ass phrase being yelled from a minivan. I like it.” Much to my surprise, that comment was called out before the minivan song. Great band, really. Catch them around town if you can.
Camp Gladiator made some folks sweat, Therapie Boutique offered some shopping, Real Ale added an additional tasty crisp to the already perfect weather. All in all… a fantastic event. I hope this event sticks around for a long time. See you on the terrace on May 27th.
