Saturday and Sunday, May 14-15
I meant to write about this event much sooner – it’s something that I’m very excited about. Houston’s food truck culture has taken off in a big way in the past few months, and that is a wonderful thing if you: 1) like good food, 2) don’t have a lot of money, or 3) all of the above. Being a member of the third category, I have found food trucks to be a saving grace on more than one occasion.
Whether you’re looking for tacos and roasted corn from No Borders, or want a little somethin’ sweet from MMM Cupcake, you will find something delicious to totally wreck any summer diet plans with this weekend at the Haute Wheels Houston Food Truck Festival. Over 20 of Houston’s best mobile food providers will be in attendance both days, dishing out food and drinks to crowds of hungry festival-goers. Be sure to get yourself a ticket here, because there’s no guarantee there’ll be any left the day of!
But food isn’t the only attraction. Also on site will be a host of vendors selling their wares and a super-cool local all-star lineup of bands, including Two Star Symphony, The Tontons, and Ancient Cat Society. So really, it’s kind of like a food truck and other-things-that-make-Houston-cool festival.
I’ll be there on Saturday – be sure to say hi. Unless I’m passed out in a food coma, in which case, you should probably just leave me alone.
