D.C. Power Lunching

As in most cities, food trucks are all the rage these days in Washington. It's not always easy to track them down as they roam from stop to stop, but once a month, a ton of trucks roll into a big lot near Nationals Stadium...


I went last week with some co-workers...



As the diet would allow, I made stops at the homemade popsicle and the lobster trucks, respectively...


Though, what I really wanted was a fancy grilled cheese...

and a cupcake!


There's a band, a beer/wine/margarita garden and the crowd is full of everyone from power players to students.


I don't know why the food trucks don't do this EVERY Friday - there were tons of people there, and I  think it could bring a whole new casual, summery feel to D.C. power lunching!

They have the food trucks out in Uptown Charlotte on Thursdays but have yet to go.
This looks super fun and I'm with you, the grilled cheese sounds good!

The best red velvet cupcake I have ever eaten came from a food trailer in Austin, TX. It's definitely good eatin'!

Love the Lobster Truck! During November recess last year a group of us stood out on the Hill for at least 45 minutes in the cold for the lobster -- haven't had it since then, but reading your post has me craving it!

I'm so sad I missed Truckeroo this month but we're so over it in August. And I think they've extended the time.
