Two Dallas-area food truck events planned for February
One in Irving, one at Sigel's in Dallas.
James Quiñonez is a talker. The owner of So-Cal-style taco truck Rock and Roll Tacos needs to be. He’s the owner of marketing firm 411 Agency and the man with big plans for the Dallas food-truck community and its customers.
During a phone conversation last night, Quiñonez excitedly relayed the details of two weekly mobile food vendor shindigs, Food Truckin’ Tuesdays and the Food Truck Experience.
The former rolls up to the Panavision HQ (8000 Jetstar Drive) in Irving, February 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the Bacon Wagon and the Asian fusion fare from fledgling Little Vessel Grill, among other trucks. The weekly affair, Quiñonez explained, will run for four weeks and act as a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s efforts to find a cure for blood cancers.
The Food Truck Experience will bring back a mini-festival of sorts to Sigel’s on Greenville beginning Wednesday, February 8. The site of Dallas’ first gourmet food-truck extravaganza will host Ruthie’s Rolling Café, Easy Slider, Four Seasons, and Rock and Roll Tacos from 5–8 p.m. “We’re also going to set up a little bakery fun land with a tent and Christmas lights for the new bakeries, like Rockstar Bakeshop,” he told me.
“Alone a food truck does OK. Banding together, we can all succeed,” said Quiñonez at the end of our chat. I’m sure he’s right.
