Food Truck-a-Thon, or How I Surf The Internets

Rickshaw Dumpling
Yes, my favorite waste of time isn't watching TV, it isn't playing my Wii, or drinking the booze, it's surfing the interwebs. I'm a click junkie, if there's a link, I click it. Last night, my click throughs led to finding out about an upcoming Food Truck-a-thon!

Ahhh, Summer
First, my trail went from to reading about Sam Sifton's week of food on Diner's Journal. He exercises more than I thought he would, and more than either of us do. It's intriguing and revolting at the same time.

Then I spotted in the right hand column "BLT Food Truck," wait, WHAT?! Red Alert NYC: We have a new burger truck, the Go Burger Truck, hitting up the neighborhoods. I haven't seen any first reports, but it's BLT (though no longer with the LT-Laurent Tourondel,) odds are high that it'll be good. I will seeking them out. Check out their Twitter feed here.

But that wasn't the end of the click parade, it ends here-Edible Manhattan's "More Food Trucks Than You’ve Ever Seen Together, Under the Brooklyn Bridge", The World's First Food Truck Drive-In Movie. Oh yes! During the Fourth Annual NYC Food Film Festival, there will be a massive amount of food trucks under the Brooklyn Bridge on June 26th from noon to 10pm. Watch movies, eat whatever (Please Dear God, bring us Kogi!)
