Food trucks to gather today for impromptu party
Curbside Cupcakes co-owner Kristi Whitfield and several of her fellow food truckers were mingling after one of their regular Monday meetings (you know, those gatherings where the mobile foodies fret and commiserate and devise strategies to counter those who would put them out of business). Well, they got to talking about how much fun they had during the inaugural Curbside Cookoff in October.
Suddenly, someone suggested that the trucks shouldn't wait another 10 months before gathering again in one spot and allowing street-food fans a chance to graze from multiple menus. Others agreed. Before they knew it, at least a half dozen operators decided to flock around Franklin Square today, Monday, Jan. 10, for their own mini-version of the Curbside Cookoff (minus the whole award competition and implied political statement).
"We're having a food-truck party is the short answer," says Whitfield. "It's fun for us, fun for our customers and it sort of breaks up the winter post-holidays blahs."
