Not sure what to do this Friday night? Check out one of Charlotte's biggest 'parties' in Southend for Food Truck Friday. Located on the corner of Park and Camden, numerous food trucks stop to give Charlotteans a taste of something new and unique to the Queen City.
This event is great for many reasons but one thing to highlight is that it is the only food truck event that is all year long! That's right, it's not just a summer thing. You and your friends can enjoy sampling some of the best food in Charlotte any Friday of the year.
No matter what Friday you choose, it's still good to plan ahead as it gets pretty crowded. There is limited seating so bring your own lawn chair or blanket to hangout for a while and to enjoy the tailgate experience. The event lasts from 5pm-9pm and all guests must vacate the lot by 10pm.
Parking is also limited in the Historic Southend so pay attention to the 'no parking' signs. Or you can avoid parking all together by taking the light rail to the stop at Bland Street, which is just north of the food truck location. The Lynx Blue line runs from I-485 in Southend all the way into Uptown covering more than 9 miles of congestion free commute. On weekend nights, the Lynx is available every 30 minutes so choose a location nearest to you to hop on and experience Charlotte's first light rail service!
Another good tip to note for this event is that no coolers are allowed however, you may purchase beer or wine next door. The Common Market and Phat Burrito are two restaurants nearby where alcohol may be purchased from. Just make sure no open containers are taken outside the lot.
So bring your friends, family and your dog and join in on the fun! For more information please visit: Food Truck Friday
