We knew expansion was coming, and now it’s official: Off the Grid will host a weekly food truck festival every Tuesday from 5 to 9 p.m. starting July 12 at the Crocker Art Museum.
Unlike the Sunday festival along the river, the Tuesday edition aims to appeal to the downtown, after-work crowd. All local food trucks will be used again, but this time, they’ll also offer a special fusion taco in addition to their usual menu. In other words, Taco Tuesdays, ya’ll.
Expected examples: Culinerdy Cruzer will offer a vegan cauliflower taco; Dojo Burger will stuff corn tortillas with chicken braised in red curry, cheese and pickled veggies; and Burgess Brothers BBQ will serve barbecued brisket tacos with spicy coleslaw.
Fitting the theme, Off the Grid’s bar will feature margaritas as well. And as with Off the Grid’s other free events, there will be music and other activities. The Crocker will extend its hours to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays for folks who want some post-taco art.
