It doesn’t always happen but I hit it lucky this week. I am taking some vacation time and I was pleased to discover that this Friday there is a Food Truck Frenzy. I don’t get to go to many of these and as you all know I love my food trucks.
Even though these events are very busy I highly recommend that you go check this out. The vibe is fun and the food is worth it. You can find all the festivities down on the Riverwalk in the East Village starting at 11:00 am going to 7:00 pm. Admission is free with a non-perishable food donation. Check out the flyer below for all the details.
So, I thought it might be fun to draw on my food truck experience and give you some tips to help you wade through the day.
It sounds like the weather is going to cooperate but I would suggest that you bring a coat anyway, preferably something waterproof. You never know in Calgary right? And speaking about clothing, I always try to wear comfortable shoes. You will be standing in line for a little while so you might as well be comfortable.
Although most of the food trucks sell drinks I always try to keep a bottle of water on hand. If you are waiting in line and get thirsty it does come in handy. I also have some gum or a candy with me in case my stomach gets hungry while I wait. That little bit will tide me over but not fill my stomach before the main event.
The last piece of advice I will give you is to bring cash. Not all the trucks have the technology to accept plastic. There is nothing worse than missing out on the truck you want to try because you can’t pay!
So I will see you all down there. I’ll be in line for Sticky Ricky’s for sure. I hear they have amazing food and I haven’t tried them yet. And who knows what else; I always try to keep an open mind because that’s when some of my best food adventures happen.
I’m not sure of the final list of trucks attending but I’d be interested to know who are you excited to try. Let me know below.
