Food Truck Throw Down This Weekend

Food Truck Foodies unite!  It’s a “Food Truck Throw Down” this Friday through Sunday in San Antonio  (July 29th – 31st) at  Boardwalk on Bulverde (preferred haunt of the Rickshaw Stop)!   All food is affordable and the entertainment won’t stop. We hear that 28 food trucks from all over the state will be there with cuisines as varied as the towns in Texas.

Here are a few of the regular food trucks at Boardwalk on Bulverde.

K-Hill BBQ

Rickshaw Stop

KC’s Cones

Watch for the Duk Truck (random rotating cuisine), Guilty Pleasures (comfort food) and Tapa Tapa (small plates, but especially fresh fruit with pop rocks) along with many others.

If you fall in love with Boardwalk on Bulverde, return for “family-friendly fun,” on Kid’s Movie Night each Thursday this summer. Friday and Saturday evenings include a DJ who brings the kids in on the musical fun, too.

*We recommend: 1) Evenings in the summer month, and 2) Sample a little of everything!



Taking the Tykes Out to Eat

Taking the kids out to eat has its challenges. Getting them to sit still for a period of time, in public, is the first challenge. The second challenge (and perhaps it should be the first challenge) is paying for the meals. We’ve done some research and want to tell you about a few locations that actually have a Kids Eat Free program. Before I name names, though, I’ll throw out a request that when you go to these places, you remember the servers who appreciate being tipped generously for all of their hard work. 🙂
