Who doesn’t love food trucks these days? They’re everywhere, from the gourmet to the homecooked grub, selling almost every food imaginable, from ice cream and waffles to dumplings, soup, and even barbecue. Everyone’s got their favorite food truck around town, like the Morris Grilled Cheese truck, or Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches. And with the advent of social media, you can easily follow your favorite trucks on Twitter and Facebook and find out where they’ll be in real time. Perfect for hitting that exact craving just when you want it!
But you don’t need Twitter to tell you where your faves will be this weekend. They’ll all be at Parked! Now in its fifth year, Parked! is a food truck festival held at South Street Seaport and gives you full access to over 30 food trucks from around the city. Famous names like Schnitzel & Things, Kimchi Taco, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, and Go Burger will all be there. Plus you’ll find great extras that make this a full-fledged food fair, New York style: a beer/champagne garden, free activities for the kids, and free music make this a ‘fest that can’t be beat. You can buy VIP tickets that will get you on the express line for each truck, plus free bites from 10 of your favorite vendors, just for $65. Considering how boss this festival is going to be, I’m guessing a VIP line will be clutch to avoid the long lines for food!
