This is the ultimate, the mega, the granddaddy feast-fest of your life. Get ready. Because it's the biggest food truck roundup of South Florida -- ever. And it's happening this Friday.

For months it's been in the works: An app that can track food trucks. Now, thanks to creators 39 Inc.
and Miami food truck blogger, Burger Beast
, there's an iPhone application that can do just that. And the day has finally come for the official release party of Food Truck Tracker iPhone App (don't worry Android users, there's a version for you in the works, as well).
This week, be among the many lucky South Florida foodies to attend the official app launch party, set to take place this Friday at Tamiami Park
in Miami. It won't just be any food truck roundup. It will be the largest food truck event ever --
or at least the largest to take place south of the Georgia border.
More than 50 trucks will be in attendance, including Tree House Truck from Orlando and Greek Bros. and Wicked Wiches of Tampa. Oh, and did we mention the prizes? A special-edition iPad2 will be raffled off to one lucky winner, as well as some Burger Beast memorabilia, including mini surfboards and T-shirts.
If there was ever a food truck party you don't want to miss, this is it. Never been to one? There's no better way to start. Can't decide what type of food you like best? Here's your chance to try them all.
