Food Truck Friday kicks off the season at Tower Grove Park

Monday, May 12th, 2014


Food Truck Friday returns this Friday, May 9

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014



Get ready to eat your heart out, St. Louis! Food Truck Friday returns this Friday, May 9 from 4 to 8 p.m., and you and everyone you know are invited to the party.

More than 20 of the best area food trucks kick off this season at our favorite stomping ground, Tower Grove Park. And we’re expanding Food Truck Friday with new offerings like more beverage options (There’s wine!), fabulous live entertainment and local charity contributions.

Also new this year: the Sauce Speed Pass, so the hungry Truckie in a hurry can get a jump on the ordering line. Here’s how the Speed Pass works:

Visit the Sauce tent. Sauce Speed Passes are available for purchase at the Sauce tent. One Speed Pass costs $10, or you can buy three Speed Passes for $25.
• Get in the fast lane. Sauce Speed Passes allow customers to use a separate, expedited Speed Pass line at each truck.
Hand it over. The truck you choose will tear off the perforated section of the Sauce Speed Pass when you order up to $25 of food and beverage. (One Speed Pass can be used at only one truck. You cannot divide $25 in purchases among trucks.)
Don’t get greedy. Only one Speed Pass can be used per person, per transaction. So no, you cannot use three Speed Passes during one order.
Use them! Each Speed Pass is valid only for that day’s Food Truck Friday. They are not transferable to future Food Truck Fridays. Speed Passes are valid rain or shine and no refunds will be issued for unused passes.

We’ve got tons of great food and entertainment in store this season, and we need some loyal Truckies to assist. We’re putting out the call for Food Truck Friday volunteers to donate some time during one of three shifts: 3 to 5 p.m., 5 to 7 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Interested in lending a hand during one of your favorite St. Louis events (and getting a few extra surprises as a thank you for your efforts)? Email events coordinator Rebecca Ryan at rryan@saucemagazine.com.

Bring your lawn chairs, dogs, picnic blankets and kids, and dress in your Food Truck Friday best. Wait, you don’t have Food Truck Friday gear? The team at STL Style has you covered with new T-shirt designs.

Hungry yet? Share your excitement (and what you’re eating!) on Twitter and Instagram with hashtag #FoodTruckFriday. See you, Friday, St. Louis!
