Love your local food trucks?
Wish they would all get together in one place to make it easier for you to compose a delicious meal concocted from each truck’s menu?
Then you need to skip the homemade meatloaf, frozen pizza or delivery dinner and visit Prospect Park every Monday night from 5:30-8:30 pm. Tasty offerings from Boulder County’s own: Comida, The Tasterie Truck, Fruta Juice, Rollin Greens, Top of the Hill Grill West and Seb’s Wood Fired Portable Cuisine are served with a hint of live music and the BYOB-everage of your choice.
Plenty of picnic tables and benches are available for you to sit and enjoy your meal, and the grassy center of the park offers a great place for conversations between new and old friends, dogs of all shapes and sizes to meet and greet and a place where kids of all ages can bring their hula hoops, bicycles, appetites and sweet teeth.
“Monday Nights in Prospect Park” are expected to continue (weather permitting) through the end of September with occasional stops through the spring. You can keep up with these mobile meal makers by following them on facebook and Twitter for up-to-date menus and the heads-up on their upcoming truck stops.
