Food Truck Fridays at Park Lane

Every Friday in December, you can grab lunch at not just one but a fleet of food trucks in one spot. They’ll stop 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. at the Shops at Park Lane off Park Lane and Central Expressway.

The next dates are Dec. 16, 23 and 30. You view the full schedule here. Food truck participants include all the popular chefs: Gennarino’s, Jack’s Chowhound, Greenhouse Truck, Ssahm BBQ, 3 Men and a Taco, Trailcakes, Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe and Nammi.

Our Lake Highlands blogger Carol Toler has a little more on the topic. Below, an excerpt:

“It’s been a huge hit so far,” said Claire Butterworth, of MCA McCrory & Associates, who’s coordinating the event. “We started the first week with six trucks, and this Friday we’ll have ten. It’s growing and everyone wants to be a part.”

While having lunch last Friday at Gordon Biersch with some Lake Highlands Women’s League buddies, Jana, Debby Kondrach and I ventured over to investigate the cupcakes – purely for journalistic purposes, you understand – and they were heavenly.
