A few weeks ago, Mark and I took a stroll to the local food truck festival! It was our first festival in the area and we were excited to check it out. We didn't buy tickets in advance, but looking back we probably should have because EVERYONE was there!
Once we got there and saw the lines, we decided to divide and conquer: each go to a different truck and then link up to share our tasty finds.
I went to a Southern-Mexican fusion truck and ordered the blackened fish tacos and mexy mac-n-cheese. It was all REALLY good, but my favorite was the mac-n-cheese. Mark got jerk chicken from a Jamaican spot. We liked it, but it was definitely no 2 Jerks.
After stuffing our faces, we started to walk around for round two. Ultimately, the lines were just too long so we skipped round two and headed straight for the desserts. We had a tough time picking, but eventually chose Tracy's Tasties, a mobile dessert truck and bakery. You know what that means? They come to you with dessert! Amazing!
As we stood in line, I sampled their lemonades (black raspberry and peach) and oh-em-gee... I had to have the peach! I have schemed to get myself a gallon of it before we leave Columbus!
For dessert, Mark got a mini sweet potato/pecan pie (yes, a combo!) and I got banana pudding cheesecake. They were both delightful and we were happy to end our food truck adventure on such a high note.

I hear there are plans for more food truck festivals in the future, but if we don't make it to one I'd be satisfied with our experience. It was a beautiful day and, had the lines not been so bad, we probably would have stuck around so Mark could enjoy the beer garden.
Things I learned: get there when it starts to avoid lines (maybe even a little before the gates open) and come very hungry! Uptown Columbus did provide ATMs, which I thought was brilliant and many people brought their own blankets/chairs... which was also brilliant because table seating was limited.
