Starting today, and every Friday hereafter, I plan to bring you the latest events and highlights for food trucks around Florida. If you're new to this phenomenon, food trucks offer the best gourmet-to-go at an affordable price. You usually can find them on popular streets in big cities serving up multi-course meals or finger foods such as tacos and cupcakes.
Here are two upcoming food truck events. I recommend bringing your friends, a couple of camp chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler full of cold beverages. Treat it like a tailgate party.
