Mixed feelings aside, the city finally made some progress for food trucks, which should make the Food Truck Social even more of a celebration this year. Back for its second year, the event will take place on August 25 and 26 in West Town on Chicago Avenue. There will be tons of food and music each day from 12 p.m. to 10 a.m.
Like last year, there will be one pop-up truck featuring various chefs trying their hand at street food. In addition, Kendall college will be on site (without a truck) with students demonstrating their take on the food truck movement as well.
There will be 14 trucks per day. Here's the lineup:
Saturday: Pop Up chef truck, Getta Polpetta,Isla De Cafe, Tamale Spaceship, More Cupcakes, Chi Town Bomber, Gigi's Bake Shop, Beyond Borders, Sweet Ride, Haute Sausage, Hummingbird Kitchen, 5411 Empanadas, and Two Italians.
Sunday: Beaver's Donuts, Starfruit, Bergstein's NY, Sweet Ride, Caponies, Taquero Fusion, Tamale Foodie, Latitude 20, Haute Sausage, Chitown Bomber, The Curried Mobile, Two Italians, and Beyond Borders.
The suggested donation is $5 and proceeds benefit the neighborhood, as well as Share Our Strength.
