Pittsboro’s April Food Truck Rodeo
A food truck lineup has been announced with Bang Bang Banh Mi, Baugettaboutit, Bandido’s, Little Dippers, Red Eye BBQ, SoomSoom Pita Pockets and Belgian Waffology. Bella Donna and Bear Creek Brews will also be there. The event is April 18th across from the Pittsboro Road House.
Chatham Street Chowdown
It’s finally here, the Chatham Street Chowdown, Town of Cary’s Food Truck Rally. I was at yesterday’s Downtown Cary Food and Flea (every second Sunday of the month) and the town has done a great job in the area promoting the event with flyers all over. Logistically Chatham Street will be closed between Academy and Harrison with 15 trucks and seating areas. Which allow fans to move about the area and admire the quaint downtown and local business. The event is Sunday from 12 to 4:30pm.
My tip: bring some friends and share your food at the new craft beer shop down Academy Street at Pharmacy Bottle + Beverage (they do have wine, too)
If this isn’t enough, check out what the Triangle Explorer’s got going on.
