SOME HARD FACTS:
This event can be tons of fun if you know what to expect before you arrive. So make sure you’re prepped and ready for a night of fun by reading this brief list of “hard facts.”
1. Expect to wait in long lines. While the food is delicious, it does not come fast. Why? Its not fast food. These are restaurants on wheels. Plan to wait.
2. We (The Daily City) have no control over the speed at which the lines move. The food trucks themselves control that.
3. Some trucks will run out of food. This can happen while you’re waiting in line.
4. Expect to experience 1 – 2 trucks. If you get to experience more, yay!
5. This event ends at midnight. If you’re in line and its midnight, your line will be cut off, whether you’ve ordered food or not. This is not our choosing.
6. If you want to sit down while in line or while eating, bring a chair.
7. Bring cash: ones and fives (not tens and twenties) are VERY welcome by the vendors. Some, not all, trucks accept credit.
TheDailyCity.com has been a supporter of food trucks dating back to 2009 when we started hosting food truck meetups called Taco Truck Taste Tests. We’d ask readers to meet us at trucks all over the city, one truck at a time, and try the food, explore new parts of the city, support small businesses The goal was to raise awareness of our city’s food trucks.
Also in 2009, we took the idea of food trucks and thought, “If you can sell food from a vehicle, what else can you sell?” and launched TheDailyCity.com Mobile Art Show, a monthly show in downtown Orlando that takes place in a moving van.
In 2010, we read about the Hells Kitchen Food Truck Bazaar, loved the idea, but thought it was a bit too ambitious for us to tackle. So, we blogged about it and left it at that. In January 2011, the owner of Red Eye BBQ food truck suggested we were the ideal people to put on a food truck event like the gatherings happening in Miami and across the country. With his vote of confidence, we made an official announcement February 2, 2011 and watched it come to life March 29, 2011.
