It’s funny how self-promotion can either come across as annoying and uneccessary or cute and endearing. Food trucks pretty much have to promote themselves to survive, and make sure customers know what they’re offering, when, and where.
In this case the popular Red Hook Lobster Pound was hoping to score another popularity title. After one month of food-truck matchups at Washingtonian, the championship round featured the lobster truck and Solar Crepes. Red Hook called out for help from one of DC’s (and Spain’s and Vegas’) most well-known chefs.
I don’t know if that actually pushed Red Hook over the edge. My guess is that it won the food truck fight by 56% to 44% on its own merit. Still, I love this cute tweet for how it brings up another Chef (and family), another restaurant, and another city across the country!
And with almost 15,000 followers, that’s a win on its own right. Congratulations to the lobster truck for being our Tweet of the week.
