‘CH Day 2010 Food Trucks’
courtesy of ‘Mr. T in DC’
The time has come and gone for camaraderie among the food trucks. In the beginning when it was just a few folks roaming the streets, they were all friends, even sharing their wares with each other. Well, those days are over. It’s a dog-eat-dog (or truck-eat-truck) world out there and it’s high time for a little competition.
Just like the We Love DC crowd’s love of food from a tiny window, our friends over at Brightest Young Things also have a thing for mobile cuisine. So they’ve taken it upon themselves to put together the first annual Curbside Cook-off. Together with the DCRA and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, BYT will host twenty mobile vendors (both carts and trucks) in the old Convention Center/new giant Chinatown bus parking lot downtown on October 7th and 8th, just a week before the new D.C. food truck legislation comes up for a vote.
BYT is leaving the participant list up to you, and will release the method by which you can vote for your favorites on Wednesday at 9am on their website. And to kick off the voting process, Chinatown Coffee will host a special happy hour from 6pm-8pm on Wednesday with some great $3 beer specials. Vote early and often, I know I will!
