I’m not really sure which food truck coined the term Farragut Friday. It’s been around for a while, so I’m thinking it could have been named by one of the original DC food trucks 2.0: Sauca, El Floridano, DC Slices or Fojol Bros. But, what does it mean?
Farragut Friday is a DC food truck tradition where many food trucks park around Farragut Square Park (17th & K St NW) on the Friday of every week. It’s definitely a sight to be seen when enough trucks participate. Lately, though, trucks have been spreading the love down K Street to Franklin Square Park (14th & K St NW) and even to 19th & L St NW on Fridays, such as today.
Also fun to note is that on Twitter on Fridays, you will see a lot of #FF tweets followed by a list of @usernames. That is a Twitter tradition called “Follow Friday” where people tweet their recommendations of people to follow or just shout outs to their best Twitter friends. So, maybe Farragut Friday was inspired by Follow Friday?
Edit: And, right after I post this article, Takorean tweets this @takorean: Our habit of serving fresh Korean TaKos to the people of L’Enfant on Friday’s continues!
