Friday Night Lights: Food Truck Style

DSC_0459copy-001 copyWM
Our local parks and recreation created a sensational show of food and entertainment when it invited food truck vendors to set up shop in our neighborhood.

Food, fun, and family. The three F’s of summer.

Luckily the park they selected to feature this row of delicious fanfare ended up only a few miles from our house. So of course….OF COURSE….we had to be there. Yes, it is a little pricey (for dishes made in a moving vehicle). But truly you are paying for the atmosphere. The people-watching. The adorable pet-watching (my favorite). The unique food vendors. And just mingling with your neighborhood.

The sights and sounds are just as delicious as what you are tasting.

As the sun sets and the shadows change, the entire view changes.

What do you order? Where do you go?

How do you choose your favorite flavor?

Splitting the family up is always a good idea. More trucks = more tastes.

And maybe you hit the same truck more than once. There is no shame in that. I know we did.

Favorite food truck? A Taste of Cuba. They have the best funnel cake fries.

Favorite dessert? Definitely, What’s da Scoop? But the snow cone truck was a close second.

These are not all the photos from our Friday Night delights, but they are ones that I see the most contrast…which happens to be the weekly photo challenge theme this week on The Daily Post at WordPress. Do you love images of light and dark? Be sure to check out the other entries. And? Look up your local parks. Maybe you have a Food Truck network nearby.

Eat mobile. It’s delicious.

Arlington Museum of Art

It’s official.

The work has been hung on the wall with great care, in hopes that lots of art lovers, soon would be there.

I LOVE this museum, not just for our work on display, but for the graciousness of the board members and the heart of the volunteers who keep it open.

They do not charge any kind of admission fee to enter. The first and second floor are filled with art from local schools in the area.

And then….the rooftop gallery where our show is. It normally features local artists (or whoever rents it), but I hear they will be displaying Ansel Adams in the next year.

So! A wonderful place to check out now……and later.

Here are some photos I took of the walls.

Here is our show invitation and reception.

Come see us at the Arlington Museum.
