Hunting & Gathering

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY OCT 17, 2018

From the nostalgic past time of running down the street to catch the icecream man to now—somewhere in between boomed this new-age food truck phenomena—humble mobiles grander than any upscale brick & mortar restaurant. Walk right up to the makeshift counter and grab a creatively cooked meal to-go, al fresco style and at crazy affordable prices. Sarasota's welcoming food truck scene is more alive than ever with open arms, open mouths and open street lots, with so many jumping on the trendy notion with more exotic bites and worldly cuisine than ever before. SRQ’s 20th Anniversary Street Party, LA STRADA will host an entire block of traveling treats on Dolphin Avenue—full of our region’s favorite local, family-owned food trucks. Unique concepts, variety of global cuisine and fun/easy dishes to stroll the grounds of the party feasting by the fistful. Get a load of the killer lineup who want to feed you plenty at this weekend’s shin-dig:
