Time to Plan the Weekend – Road Trip or Guitar Riff


DFW Food Truck Events Both Near and Far For Great Causes

It’s time to plan the weekend.  Whether you’re up for a road trip or want to stay closer to home, there are two big special events featuring food trucks this weekend.  Both events are being held to benefit great cause!

Dallas/Fort Worth INVADES San Antonio

There’s going to be a caravan of DFW food trucks travelling down I-35 for the first annual DFW Invades San Antonio.  They’re headed for Boardwalk on Bulverde, a food park in San Antonio where they will set up with local SA favorites for a weekend devoted to raising money to conquer Chiari, a devastating neurological disorder.

Dallas/Fort Worth Trucks include:

Drifting Bistro
Easy Slider
Good Karma Kitchen
Pompeii (debut)



San Antonio Trucks scheduled are:

Rickshaw Stop
Society Bakery
Spice Runner
Taco King
Guilty Pleasures
Primo Passo Pizzeria
Sabor Columbiano
Totally Shredded
Toastie Buns
KC’s Cones

Yours truly will be making the trip with the DFW Trucks and I’ll bring back the full report.  Besides, somebody’s gotta go and make sure San Antonio doesn’t try to hi-jack one (or more) of our great trucks.

This is a family (and dog!) friendly event with multiple playgrounds, a full arcade, moon bounce house and live music.  You’ll find more than 10 choices of beer for purchase in addition to soft drinks, Gatorade and water.  Admission and parking are FREE!  You can find more information about the food park, including directions and maps, at this website.

White Rock Lake Tunes & Trucks Festival

If you need to stay closer to home, there’s lots of good trucks staying in DFW and many of them are going to be hanging our at this great festival to benefit the White Rock Lake Foundation.  This year’s Festival Theme is “Tunes & Trucks” with two full days of activities planned featuring hot bands and great food trucks:

         Featured Trucks:

          CNJ Texas BBQ

          Crazy Fish

          Cup Cakin’

          Doughboys Pizza

          Four Seasons

          Gandolfo’s NY Deli

          Jack’s Chow Hound

          The Butcher’s Son

          The Lab of the Street

There’ll be plenty of hot licks and toe-tappin’ music to enjoy with your gourmet truck food.  Just look at this line-up:

I thought about making some music pairing suggestions with the food but decided it was better to leave that choice to you!

There is a $5.00 admission charge (FREE under 5 years old) to the festival but 100% of those proceeds go to help maintain and beautify White Rock Lake, a local natural treasure.  Get the kids face painted, take a canoe ride on the lake and find a loving 4-legged friend to adopt and take home with you at the pet adoption!

What great options!  Whether you plan to stay home or decide to take a road trip, either one of these events offer a great experience and the chance to support worthy causes.
