New Years Eve isn't stopping Ft. Worth's Rahr and Sons Brewery from holding its weekly Saturday Beer Tour. Lee's Grilled Cheese, The Bacon Wagon and Rahr have teamed up for this week's tour in what might be the perfect trifecta of tastes to wrap up 2011. The whole family is welcome to join in on the $7 tour, but only the 21 and up set will get to fill up their complimentary pint glass for three beer tastings. The Food Trucks will be set up from 1-3 and the brewery tour typically gets started around 2:30. Rahr and Sons Brewery is located at 701 Galveston Avenue in Fort Worth.

When I began Big D Food Trucks 6 short months ago, I was juggling just a dozen or so Food Truck schedules. Fast forward to today and you've got a new one coming almost every week. So, after careful thought and consideration I am making some much needed change to the way we do things around here. Going forward, the daily schedule will reflect only the Dallas locations of Food Trucks. And here's why: I would never want to jeopardize the integrity of these hard working truckers or to my readers by posting misleading locations. By narrowing the schedule to Dallas, I'll be able to better prevent that. After all, we are Big D Food Trucks. Not Big Irving. Not Big Fort Worth.
But before you go unfollowing me in revenge of abandonment, hear me out. I will continue to blog post about all DFW Food Trucks. This is still the best place to find out news, special events and big changes to all of your favorites. All North Texas trucks will remain in my "Rolling Now" bar with links to their pages and I will stay abreast of who's going to be "Rolling Soon." In fact, I heard of a good one this morning: The Meatbomber...But more on that later. You have probably also heard that the fine folks at the City of Dallas have finally come through for us and made some important updates to city regulations. With these changes, many of your favorite Ft. Worth trucks will be working on a Dallas permit. So as you can see, it's really less of a goodbye and more of a see ya later.
Happy New Years to you all and keep on truckin' in 2012.
Happy New Years to you all and keep on truckin' in 2012.

The Countdown is on! Eight days from now, thousands of partygoers will flood Victory Park to pop a cork and ring in 2012. Big D NYE is celebrating its fifth year and for the first time, Food Trucks will be there joining in on the revelry. With all the bubbly being consumed, you'll be happy to have City Street Grille, Gandolfo's NY Deli, Nammi Truck, Ssahm BBQ and The Butchers Son on the scene to feed the hungry masses. Also scheduled for the live televised event is a spectacular fireworks show, music from hit bands like Sleeperstar and a chance to win prizes like a Chevy Sonic and a trip to Sonoma. All activities are free to the public and food/alcohol can be purchased, but make sure and consider using public transit as huge crowds can make parking a hassle. For a full line-up, check out the official website of Big D NYE and we wish you all a very Happy New Year; See ya in 2012!

If you saw all the snow on the news blanketing the DFW suburbs this morning then you know that the holidays are fast approaching.

This year, give your friends and family something they'll never expect with a Food Truck gift card. Many of Dallas and Fort Worth's tastiest rolling restaurants offer cards or certificates that will be sure to impress even the most dilettante of diners. Be sure to swing by one of the following trucks offering gift cards before your next White Elephant office party:
-The Bacon Wagon

When I saw the line-up for the inaugural Food Truck Friday at the Shops at Park Lane, I suddenly found the need to stop by Nordstrom Rack between, say, 11 and 2... Greenhouse, Jack's Chowhound, Ruthie's Rolling Cafe, Trailercakes, 3 Men and a Taco, Gennarino's and Ssahm BBQ are the first group slated for tomorrow's food court setting up on the green across from Gordon Biersch. Even if you can't swing by, make sure and go to the Shops at Park Lane's facebook page and vote for your favorite mobile eatery. The one with the most 'likes' under their photo nabs a spot on the center's new digital board!
