When Food Truck Friday was a thing


Here is a story from October 14, 2011, when Food Truck Friday started.

Food Truck Friday hits Coconut Grove Bank lot

food10There was lots of Food Truck Love today when the first Food Truck Friday happened at the Coconut Grove Bank parking lot. The whole bank building came out to enjoy and so did all the workers in the buildings around the general area.

Lynn Cambest, Executive VP of Coconut Grove Bank, was all smiles and thumbs up. He was thrilled at the turn out.

Christine Woll, the bank's Marketing Director, in center, was all smiles, too. This was her idea and she plans on expanding it to more trucks and possibly having it later in the day, around happy hour time, so that people from other areas of the city can come and enjoy.

Ms. Cheezious, Mr. Good Stuff, The Health Nut on Wheels and Wrap It Up were out from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm.

Tables were set up and the bank already has cement tables and umbrellas there usually, so it was a nice cozy way to have lunch on a nice Miami low humidity day.

The trucks were thrilled and they told me that they enjoy being in the Grove and would love to be here every chance they get.

For now it seems, many of the food trucks have Food Truck Friday as a regular event date on their calendars.

Stop by next week if you can. There is something for everyone.

Our favorite is always Ms. Cheezious, but there were plenty of other choices and it should get better and better as the weeks go on. Originally I thought that the parking lot company, Paradise Parking was throwing the event, but Coconut Grove Bank can take credit for the whole thing. And they did an excellent job of coordinating this.

It was wonderful and then Coconut Grove Bank sold out to developers.

Hurricane Andrew topple a few trees and removed tons of potential dangerous over growth. And so do some developers, but after about 12 months it looked better than ever. The CG Bank didn't "sell out" their community, they profited about $60-M. That lot and many others throughout Miami are reaping in hundreds of millions of dollars annually that benefit the well-off and those below the poverty line; the homeless, free health-care at all hospital emergency rooms, police, fire, infrastructure, schools, children in need, etc., etc., & etc.. The only problems are over-populations and resulting human nature. Things are as your god and/or resulting human nature dictates. Make all women so ugly; no more fantastic female forms and presto fewer humans! Simple, right?
