Today, from 5 until 9 p.m., marks the final Food Truck Friday of the year in Charlotte, NC. What started about four years ago with a few trucks has maxed out at 14 food trucks and a secure place in the hearts and stomachs of Charlotte residents. The food trucks have gathered in a lot at the corner of West Park and South Tryon, in the Historic South End neighborhood, since the beginning, but the property has been sold and development is about to begin, requiring a change of venue.
Next spring, the new site will be in the park bordered by West, Hawkins, West Kingston, and South Tryon, just a couple of blocks from the old site. In addition, there will be a second location, at The Light Factory, 1817 Central Avenue, in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood. In the meantime, enjoy a feast from Two Chix and a Truck, the Southern Cake Queen, Boone’s BBQ, and 11 more trucks at this evening’s season-ending gathering.
