If you like food trucks, or just food in general, get yourself to Mt. Pleasant on Thursday evening:
Join your Mount Pleasant neighbors for an evening of food and fun! Porc, Fojol, Pleasant Pops and DC Empanadas will be in Mount Pleasant for our first ever Food Truck Thursday. Help make it a success for the neighborhood and the food trucks so that we can make this a regular event.
There has also been talk of having board game night out in the Park to make it a fun evening, and get to know some of your neighbors!
Come for some food and outdoor fun, stay in the neighborhood and have a drink with some friends at some of the neighborhood establishments afterwards.
Haydees Restaurant (http://haydees.us/) has so generously provided 20% off cards that I will have at the food truck event, and they will be having Rock Creek Jazz (http://www.rockcreekjazz.com/) playing that evening from 7 til 11 just down the street. Their food and margaritas are amazing, and I promise that you will love them. A great neighborhood restaurant if you've never been there.
Don Juan's just off of the park will be having karaoke that evening, and I'm waiting to hear back on any specials they may have for the food truck event. They have wonderful food and drinks, and an amazing outdoor patio whenever the weather is nice!
Enjoy the great establishments and people of our wonderful neighborhood!
