It's Memorial Day weekend, the kids are restless, and you've singed your eyebrows off while attempting to start the backyard barbecue. We say get away from the open flames and let the food trucks handle your family's hunger at these roundups.
Saturday, May 26
If your idea of a good time is a little hog to go with your pork, head over to either Bruce Rossmeyer's Harley-Davidson's Sunrise or Fort Lauderdale locations from noon to 4 p.m.
Lucille's on Wheels and Miami Spice Grill will be at the Fort Lauderdale location (2871 N. Federal Highway), while Mobile Culinary Kitchen and Nana Nina's will be serving up chow at the Sunrise dealership (201 International Parkway). Test-drive a Harley at either location and receive a voucher for a free meal at any of the food trucks.
If you're heading to the beach to try to get some rays in between the thunder boomers that are predicted to sporadically rain on our parade on Saturday, check out B.C. Tacos and Big Kahuna. They'll be serving lunch in front of Tropic Cay and Waterfront Inn at the corner of Windamar and A1A on Fort Lauderdale beach.
