An expanded Food Truck Friday
Come get your red on as The Star’s Food Truck Friday takes on a football flavor.
Join us at 18th and Grand as First Friday and Food Truck Friday intersect with Red Friday. For the fourth year in a row, you’ll get a chance to sample the city’s best street fare from 12 local food trucks, but on this Friday, there’s much more.
Former Chiefs players, including Hall of Famer Willie Lanier, will be on hand to meet and talk football, as will some of The Star’s sports writers and columnists. There will also be a beer garden for adults, live music from former Chiefs tight end Walter White, and a station where you can make your own Chiefs action figure.
You can also hang out and talk with Jill Wendholt Silva, The Star’s James Beard award-winning food editor and restaurant critic.
The food trucks will be in The Star’s parking lot at the corner of 18th and McGee streets from 5 to 8 p.m. The lineup: Beauty of the Bistro, CoffeeCakeKC, Crave of Kansas City, Deco Street Eats, El Tenedor, Indios Carbonsitos, The Moose Truck, Prairie Fire Oven, Smokin’ Fresh Streetside BBQ, Street Wings KC, Torched Goodness Creme Brulee and Wilma’s Real Good Food.
Save the date: Last Food Truck Friday of the season will be Oct. 3.
