I just got word about Truckeroo’s dates for this year: 4/11, 5/9, 6/13, 7/11, 8/8, 9/12
For the uninitiated, Truckeroo is DC’s monthly food truck festival that is held monthly during the warmer months of the year. It is held at the DC Fairgrounds, which is directly across from the Navy Yard ballpark metro entrance. There are usually 25 trucks in attendance, and the lineup changes from event to event. Truckeroo typically lasts from 11am – 11pm.
I’ll provide more details as we near the first Truckeroo of 2014!

CapMac has a new operator (Josh) and is currently soft-opening in the District. They aren’t announcing locations just yet because they need time to get in the groove of things. So, if you happen to see CapMac, wish them a warm welcome back! I will start tracking them on the map again once they give me the green light.
