If you love the south Florida food truck scene but hate the drive down to Miami (with gas prices hitting close to four bucks a gallon, who can blame you?), this weekend may be the answer to all the nights you left a tiny little taco under your pillow, waiting for the Food Truck Fairy to answer your prayers.
Food trucks are all over Broward County this weekend (we've also included Haulover Beach since it's so close to the Dade-Broward county line)!
There are food truck roundups at car dealerships, casinos, the beach and even a fundraiser for all you do-gooders out there. This is your chance to get your friends and your appetite together and kick it into high gear with a little street food action.
