Parked: The Gowanus Food Truck Festival
New York is a fat kid’s dream. There are pizza places and bagel shops every 1.5 blocks, as well as trucks waiting for you on the sidewalk when you suddenly crave a chocolate crossiant or flaffel. Normally, it’s totally worth walking a few extra blocks to find an ice cream truck, so you can chase your fish tacos with a cherry dip cone. But today is Memorial Day, a holiday better celebrated with stationary outdoor gluttony. Sure, you can go to a barbecue. But if you’re craving more snack served from transportation in your life, head down to The Brooklyn Yard for Parked, the Gowanus Food Truck Festival. Instead of covering five or more blocks so you can get key lime pie and your friend can scarf on some dumplings, you’ll just have to wander through a grassy lot!
