Ethyl's Truckin' Thursdays

I think food trucks are just about the greatest thing since sliced bread, but (and I'm sure you're all tried of hearing about this) working out in the awful, mind-numbing, lifeless suburbs doesn't allow me to take advantage of their daily wares. I've already told you about Food Truck Tuesdays, but I found another weekly food truck gathering: Ethyl’s Truckin’ Thursdays.

Starting tonight, Ethyl's Beer & Wine Dive will host an array of food trucks every Thursday from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. in their parking lot in the West Loop. I've heard conflicting reports on just how many trucks will be there, but you can count on at least four every week. Tonight will feature Gaztro-wagonSouthern MacMeatyballs Mobile5411 Empanadas, Haute SausageFlirty Cupcakes and Sweet Ride.

By the way, I just heard that Food Truck Tuesdays has been extended through July, so you still have a chance to head out there.

I REALLY want to try this one! via


  1. My husband worked in the burbs for about two years, so I know from him how horrible it can be! The traffic and the lack of anything interesting to do is a bummer combination. HOpefully you're not out there forever!

    I don't work in the loop, plus I work random hours, so I haven't gotten to try any food trucks yet. I might hit up the Tuesday one if I get a chance, because going to the West Loop on a weeknight is kinda far for me. I love the idea, though!
