Food Trucks Gathering in Baltimore

Food Trucks Gathering in Baltimore

On Friday, August 5th, 2011  5 PM - 10 PM, there will be the 2nd Gathering of Food Trucks in Fells Point, Baltimore, MD.   The food trucks will rally at 906 S. Wolfe St. , Baltimore , MD , 21231, across from Red Star.

Baltimore's food truck fleet will gather in Fells Point for the city's second food-truck rally. Gypsy Queen, Miss Shirley's, Souper Freak, GrrChe and Iced Gems are expected. The location is the parking lot across from the Red Star. The event will include live music, and beer and wine will be sold.  Baltimore Sun

If the only fare you have gotten is a hot dog on the side of the road, you are in for a treat.  These are gourmet food trucks, restaurant quality food prepared by top chefs from around the Baltimore, Maryland.

There Goes My Hero Foundation will have a tent to enlist more donors to the Bone Marrow Registry.  If you can't make it to the event on Friday, you can register online, and when people see you walk by they'll say "There Goes My Hero"!

Prior to the first Gathering of Food Trucks, WBAL-TV spoke to Chef Chris Cherry of The Silver Platter:

"What we have are things like sweet chili baby-back ribs, we have lobster mac and cheese with truffle essence, we have some creamed white corn and prosciutto bacon, we do things like firecracker shrimp and New England lobster roll, which is one of our biggest sellers," said Chef Chris Cherry, of Silver Platter. "We wanted to give the customer something different than just food in a brown bag, so we went to high-end plastics and different types of presentation."   WBAL-TV

I don't know about you, but that just made me "Hon"gry!!

Will you be heading to Fells Point to sample the gourmet food trucks on Friday, August 5th, 2011 at The Gathering TAKE 2?

Out here, people can order the "Fatburger Truck" to come to their house at a party...

Great stuff. Love the food truck rally too!

I'm all in when it comes to the gourmet food truck!  I'd be all over it!

Sounds like a Party!

   Mom lives in Baltimore; I have been to Fells Point many times.  It is a great place to spend a day.

What a great event. Get your camera and take lots of pictures.

The first event was a smash. Indeed this is haute cuisine on wheels, come hungry and be early. A lot of the grub sold out the last time.

This sounds like a great time.  I have parked in that lot and gone to The Dead End a few times.

I used to own a food truck!  It was actually an old Scotty Trailer painted bright blue, serving BBQ pulled pork sandwiches at festivals.  Food Truck events didn't exist back then, but would have loved them!

Michael, I have seen some of these trucks out at parties...great idea.  Have food, will travel!

Larry, Bring the family! It would be fun!

Fred, the day, the night, anytime is great for Fells Point.  A town of bars and restaurants on the water, what is not to like?

Ellie, We have a pretty packed weekend ahead, hope we can make it there!

BaltimoreJack, They are saying they will have more help, more food and fewer lines.  I think they will find there will be even more people this time!  Hope they can handle it!

June, Ahhh, the Dead End.  I have played pool and drank big beers there more times than I can count!  What fun!

Didi, Baltimore is really stepping up.  There is even a show on the food channel about them.  Maybe it's time to get back in the business!!
