Food Trucks Galore!

There are very few things in life that I love as much as food. Well, to be honest, there isn't really anything I love as much as food. And I love trying new food, too. I'll try almost anything at least once, and more often than not I will like it. I was recently in Mexico visiting my sister and it was so hard to not stop at all of the street vendors tempting me with all sorts of weird snacks and meats that looked delicious (since you have to be careful down there, it's better to be safe than sick I suppose). I think I may love 'street food' best of all. You can walk around and try lots of different things! It's perfect. However, I don't think we have enough of that sort of thing around here, unless you go to a market like Eastern Market or there is some sort of festival going on. This is why I am so excited for tomorrows 4th Street Eats in Ferndale. 
Tomorrow (Thursday, June 21), you can head down to the alley behind Rust Belt Market and not only do a little shopping at all of the great artisans inside, but try lots of delicious foods from food trucks, seven food trucks to be exact! There will also be live entertainment and admission is free! Unfortunately, because of health codes, it is a dog-free event, so I will not be able to play with all of your adorable puppies while stuffing my face with food.

If you don't get enough of the food trucks tomorrow, there are a few other dates lined up for similar events- July 19, August 23, September 20 and October 18. So make sure to keep an eye on the Michigan Mobile Food Vendors Association so you know what is going on. 

If you can't wait until next month, there is another event happening this weekend on Saturday, June 23. Woodward Avenue Brewers is presenting 'The Ferndale Truck Stop' from 11 a.m.- 10 p.m. There is a ton of stuff going on at this event. There will be 10 food trucks, a beer tent with the Detroit Derby Girls, kid activities AND this one is dog friendly! This truck rally is also free and in Ferndale, but it is behind the WAB and Emory.
If that is not enough food for you, I don't know what to do with ya. So head out tomorrow for some dinner before going to the Wild in the Streets Benefit Show over at Modern Skate and then go fill yourself up even more on Saturday.
