Neighborhood Food Truck Celebration 😋🌭 🍔🍟

Kicking off a brand new school year, Short Avenue is hosting three fabulous food trucks + a live concert featuring the Del Rey Community Jazz Band on Wednesday, August 16 starting at 5pm on the front lawn.

Truck line up offers returning favorite The Greasy Weiner (offering award-winning hand-made hotdogs made from locally source ingredients, sausage, burgers and specialty fries), and newcomers, soon-to-be favorites, Mandoline Grill (offering fresh, crisp vegan and carnivore-friendly bánh mì sandwiches, and mother’s famous bún thịt nướng noodle bowls) and Churro Stix, tantalizing you with gourmet churros. Churro Stix is revolutionizing the art of churro-making and will be the next go-to dessert place.

Relax with new and old friends, let the children play, and enjoy a tasty picnic style meal with savory and sweet treats on a warm August evening. That’s Short Avenue’s Food Truck Fiesta, the third Wednesday of the month during day light savings times.Neighborhood Food Truck Fiesta
