A Super Fun Food Truck Social

Part of the deal with having 4 kids is family outings most often revolve around something free or nearly so. There are exceptions, and just over a week ago, we had occasion to enjoy a wonderful one - A Food Truck Social sponsored by Time Out Chicago. Though we spent money (I am glad I don't know exactly how much), we walked away with wonderful memories and the added bonus of giving back.

The entry fee was given to Share Our Strength for the No Kid Hungry Campaign campaign. No kid should ever be hungry.

This pretty truck Hummingbird Kitchen sold lovely things including the Italian French Fries Jake ordered. Since then, I've been craving a Nicoise sandwich.

Sweet Ride sold my dear sweet-loving daughter whoopie pies. Ella loves whoopie pies. I might have helped her - just a little bit.

The line for tamales from Tamale Spaceship. A reason why Doug wants to quit his job, buy a food truck and sell tamales.

My personal fave - the most delicious curried chicken pot pie pasty in the world Bridgeport Pasty

Lillie's Q makin' the sammies.

A $5 pulled pork slider. Truthfully, I think Doug's BBQ is better. Another reason Doug wants to quit his job, buy a food truck and sell BBQ sliders.

Street food should be eaten on the street.

And at a street fair, children should dance.

It was great to experience so many food trucks all in one place.

And it was a day we'll never forget.

Thanks for snapping the pic TOC!

A delicious day worth every penny.

Who is this Doug and why isn't he selling food for a living?

Looks like you all had a good time and some good eats! Tell Doug to quit his job and buy a truck, I think it's a great idea.

That's so cool you got to try all those food trucks at the same time! Wish we had something like that here. Stopping by from the DBM Top 9 :-)
