I've been hearing the buzz about Union Market and now I find out that Trucktoberfest will be held there. 20+ vendors AND 40+ food trucks... let's go for lunch!
We can meet at Buffalo & Bergen; they may or may not be open but the counter is there on the 5th street side of the market. The more people we have, the more opportunities to split stuff so we can try more things or at least compare notes. I was thinking of having a beverage, some food truck lunch and then a walk around the market. Here are some details:
