Mounts Botanical Garden Food Truck Event This Sunday

The typical food truck rally, with its throngs of hungry patrons and platefuls of sloppy tacos and shredded pork, probably doesn't rank too high on the list of mood-setting date destinations. While Sunday's Gourmet Truck Expo event at Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach isn't exactly a candle-lit corner table at Café Boulud, neither is it entirely without charm, what with the 14-acre "urban oasis" serving as the backdrop.

A handful of GTE trucks will be in attendance, including Slow Food Truck and Sugar Yummy Mama, and beer and wine will be available for purchase. The event is noon to 7 p.m., and there is a $5 suggested donation for entry, plus the cost of food and drink.
