Tucson Food Trucks Roundup – January 29by Karyn Zoldan on Jan. 28, 2012, under A Tisket, A Tasket, Arts, Desert Locavore
Tucson’s Best Kept Secret
For a delightful and inexpensive night of tasteful exploration, try the Tucson Food Truck Roundup.
This Sunday, January 29, 4-8 pm, corner of Sixth Street/Seventh Avenue
Each Food Truck is its own kitchen on wheels. Each chef has her/his own way of combining fresh ingredients. We like keeping this event relatively unknown, and kind of small, so that we can all enjoy sampling different food truck cuisine. A little Sunday afternoon exploration.
Tables and chairs will be set up at the Benjamin Plumbing Supply parking lot and Tucson’s food trucks are invited to drop by.
