New truck parks and the '101'

Photo: , License: N/A


Last month, the City Council approved a food truck pilot program downtown, allowing for 15 food trucks to park and sell food at three downtown locations. The program started on May 1 and will wrap up at the end of October. So if you're hungry and downtown, you can head to HemisFair Park, Maverick Park, and the City Hall's annex parking lot for a different kind of lunch or dinner. Come October's close, the program could become a permanent fixture. We'll see.
If you thought Southtown is the new red light district, you will be glad (or disappointed) to know that's not the case. But Southtown 101 (101 Pereida) does have a bright red light attracting imbibers who are looking for yet another chill patio in the area. The bar serves beer, wine, and sangria, and has put the word out to several area food trucks to set up shop for late night snacks. With Bliss and the Monterey within spitting distance, Southtown 101 offers another bead on a cool line of hangouts.
