Dallas TX: It was an innocent question, one I assumed the gentleman at Oak Cliff Earth Day wouldn’t be able to answer. “Where are the food trucks going to be?”
“Along Flora Street,” he replied without skipping a beat, the same stretch of the Arts District mobile food vendors were stationed during the Arts in October celebration.
My intention wasn’t to entrap the Earth Day Dallas representative behind the table at Lake Cliff Park; rather, it was an assumption that because of the event’s location (the Arts District) mobile food vendors would be a given at festival. It was after all in Veletta Lill’s domain. The former city council member and Arts District executive director might not rule the Big D roost, but as the khaki shorts-wearing gentleman conveyed, “She was instrumental in the placement of the food trucks.”
One of those trucks is City Street Grille owned by Hunter Johnson and Jessica Smith. They have been operating with great success since September 1, first as a late-night munchie destination and recently as a Design District lunch spot. “We’re still experimenting to see what areas work best,” Johnson said.
