Food trucks have been around for some time and here in Reno, there are two major events: Food Truck Fridays and Reno Street Food. There's drama surrounding the two groups. Supposedly Food Truck Fridays was the original event in downtown Reno, held on the first Friday of the month. I wasn't there for the opening this year but it must have been quite a success. Perhaps the crowds and long lines waiting for food spurred the announcement of another food truck event put on by a group called Reno Street Food to be held on the other Fridays of each month.
We had the chance to go to the Reno Street Food in June (see post listed in June under Blog Archive) which was held at Idlewild Park so we wanted to check out the Food Truck Fridays this past July 6th.
We both liked Reno Street Food better (although some people might like the industrial, downtown feel of Food Truck Fridays better). The venue at Idlewild Park made it a little more family friendly. It's cooler and there are plenty of places to sit. It felt like one big family barbeque and we'll probably go to Reno Street Food again.
