First up, Durham’s big food truck rodeo is slated for this Sunday, September 1. The event is scheduled to start around noon at Central Park, and should run until 4:30.
60 trucks? Wow. It’s astounding to me how quickly this scene has exploded in the area; I remember when the only truck I knew of was just some dude in a taco / Indian truck outside of Sam’s every now and then. Durham’s “FTR” was the first in the area, but Raleigh is home to a similar event as well.
WRAL’s presently calling for a beautiful day with highs in the 80’s and no rain, but the rodeo will go on rain or shine should the forecast change.
In other food truck news, we have Duke’s fall food truck lineup. A limited number of trucks can apply for permits to actually set up in lucrative positions on campus, and according to The Chronicle this year’s trucks are:
The seven trucks approved for this year are Baguettaboutit, Captain Ponchos, Chirba Chirba Dumpling, Fosters on the Fly, Gussy’s, Humble Pig and Parlez-Vous Crepes—all of which provide meals rather than snack food.
The Chronicle article laments the loss of one of last year’s favorites, LoYo.
