Haute Wheels Houston Rolls Out This Weekend
Photos by Groovehouse
The 3rd annual Haute Wheels food truck festival is hitting the streets this weekend. The two-day event will cover the entire parking lot at HCC Southwest's campus, with more than 30 different trucks to cater to every possible craving you could have.
Hot dogs at Good Dog. Crawfish rolls at Fraiche. PB&Js at Monster PB&J. Cake pops at Zeapod Cakery. Fried avocado tacos at H-Town StrEATs. The 420 slice at Pi Pizza. Snails at L'es-Car-Go. All the things you've been meaning to try -- all in once place.
Yes, there will be shade.
Tickets to the festival are still on sale. A $16 ticket gets you one day of admission as well as five drink tickets which can be used to purchase sodas or to sample wine and beer. (You'll need to purchase food from the individual trucks, so bring cash!) The ticket price also includes the live music playing all day long -- and these aren't lame cover bands, either. Bands playing include the Southern Backtones, Craig Kinsey and Folk Family Revival among others.
Although all of the VIP tickets are sold out, come by and visit me at the VIP tent if you snagged one. I'll be handing out wristbands and goodie bags on Saturday afternoon, as well as hitting a few of my must-try trucks I haven't had a chance to visit yet.
Haute Wheels runs from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24.
