Yeah, I'm into food trucks - having them lined up around a nice little park on 1st Friday with Albany Center Galleries nearby makes for a nice evening out.
All Over Albany provided some very nice photos too:
The weather was perfect and you couldn't ask for a nicer little park for a food truck gathering. There are plenty of sitting places and people can spread out while sampling the fare. Someone commented that music was needed and I heartily disagree. Why ruin a lovely quiet Friday evening with some over loud band? I'm not into having to scream to my dining companions.
I'm not sure how much I can go on about food truck food. I don't know what the attraction is, but it's got something to do with being outside and having dishes I don't have very often and it brings back feelings of dairy bars at the beach and summer. It is what it is and there didn't seem to be much out of the normal fare of burgers and fries, but there were a few different things to try and I hope in future there will be more. I had chicken spiedies from the Chuck Wagon and tried to get the fabulous looking bacon wrapped mac and cheese balls, but they were gone after the first hour. The chicken spiedies were tasty.
I was consoled with an ice cream from Emack & Bolios after the bacon wrapped mac and cheese balls were erased from the menu. I know...not too shabby.
I look forward to drifting downtown on future 1st Fridays to sample a few more food truck delights this summer.
