Boston Food Truck Festival, June 10, 2012 – Ticket Giveaway!

Ah food trucks. I don’t think I need to express my  complete and utter glee at the fact that Boston has embraced this trend and is offering its residents a wide range of food truck options on a daily basis.

The only problem is, maybe you can never get to Government Center to try the Taco Truck, or to Prudential to try Go Fish. Well pay attention my roach coach challenged friends, because the Boston Foodtruck Festival is here to sooth your lunch location woes. That’s right, you can try ALL of the food trucks in one place, in one afternoon.

And better yet, I am giving away a pair of tickets to the event on June 10, 2012 at the UMass Boston Campus Center. Keep Reading after the press release about the event to find out how to enter….

  1. I hope I did it right. I Twittered (I monitor on my phone but don’t normally tweet). I also posted on Facebook. I would love to win tickets – we’re from Missouri! And we’ll be there!
    We only have a few food trucks here. We like the Traveling Taco.

  2. Fancheezical in providence, RI. Hot cheesy awesomeness. Best grilled cheese truck…I’ve tried a few diff in the RI/MA area

  3. The best mobile food I had was at a truck in Portland, OR. It was a ‘Super Falafel’ – delish falafel and soft tender lamb. So good!

  4. I have to find Clover one of these days! My best food truck ever was a random LA taco truck — I wish I could find it again! Here in Boston, it’s Roxy’s.

  5. I loveee all of the grilled cheese options from Roxy’s, and then of course my classic go-to truck from the very start of it all is still Clover – cannot go wrong with their chickpea fritter!

  6. I loveee all the grilled cheese options at Roxy’s, but my go-to truck of them all is still Clover – cant go wrong with their chickpea fritter & truffle fries!

  7. Going to a food truck for lunch is the best way to force myself to get some fresh air during the work day! I’ve tried a few trucks around my office and Clover and their chickpea sandwich is my favorite. They also have good lemonade flavors – peach is my favorite.

    I just tweeted about this too from @KristenD56

  8. Sadly, the food truck revolution has not made it up to the Seacoast of NH, so I have not had a “best” experience yet. Looking forward to having one though!
