Last Friday Austin and some people from his work went to this thing called "Food Truck Friday". The name is pretty self-explanatory, but basically there are a bunch of food trucks that gather in the Dallas Arts District during lunch on weekdays, and on Fridays people go and eat! Austin liked it a lot last week, so yesterday he asked me to meet him up there. (click here to read more about food trucks in Dally bar)
The first thing that I noticed when I got there was the parking. "No Parking" signs galore! Parking in foreign territory always makes me nervous, but I eventually found a spot in between two cars who looked like they knew what they were doing, and I did not get towed.
I got there kind of early, but I didn't mind because it was a nice day outside and I found the perfect spot:
I parked myself on that bench and cracked open the book I'm reading right now, My Sister's Keeper. I know I'm about 5 years late to this party, but oh well. So far, I'm liking it a lot!
My bench had a perfect view of some more food trucks,
a group of children playing on this water structure thing,
and these stairs.
Out of all of those things, the stairs were the most entertaining to me. The reason? As I was watching the kiddies play in the water, I heard a huge "THUNK" coming from the stairs. I looked over, and I saw this woman face first on the concrete. I rushed over to her and asked if she was alright, and she looked up and me and goes, "Well that was embarrassing. I hope no one else saw," and then she proceeded to sit on the stairs for about 3 minutes. It was strange, and after she got up and trotted off into the sunset, I had to chuckle to myself.
Once Austin and his friend from worked showed up we chose our truck:
A truck sponsored by Johnsonville Sausage. How bad could this food be, right?
This was the menu:
And this is what I ordered:
|"Southern Hospitality" and the "Mac N. Beefy"|
So hey, if you're ever in need of some lunch from a truck and you're in the Dallas area, The Dallas Arts District is a good place to go!
