After the success of The Moveable Feast, Tacoma’s inaugural food festival, the organizers put together D.I.N.E., a smaller and adult-only version of the event, which was held last night, September 8.

$10 got you in, and there were live bands, beer and, of course, food trucks. The event was held at Cheney Stadium’s infield, which was probably my favorite part. It’s not every day you get to eat and enjoy music on a baseball field.

Trucks in attendance were Burrito Boy, Celebrity Cake Studio, Choripan, Lumpia World and Maximus/Minimus. Where Ya at Matt was supposed to be there, but they didn’t make it. Read More »

The Moveable Feast Tacoma

Today I had the pleasure of attending the inaugural Moveable Feast at Cheney Stadium.

The gathering of over 30 food trucks in Tacoma was organized by the incredible Alyson Jones of the Tacoma Rainiers. Thank you, Alyson and the Rainiers for bringing such a great event to Tacoma! The best part? A portion of the proceeds benefit Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital.

Tacoma doesn’t exactly have a huge food truck culture…yet. Back in 2010, I wrote about some changes that were being made to our local attitude and regulations, as well as the general lack of support and encouragement regarding creating a food truck/cart culture around here. I’m hoping that is something that will change, especially from the throngs of thousands of folks who flocked to today’s event.

The early entrance VIP time at 11 a.m. was slow starting, with little to no lines and plenty of room at the tables.

It really started to pick up as soon as the free general admission opened up at noon. I hear it’s currently a bit of a zoo.

But don’t let that stop you from coming down. The lines move fast, and there’s still lots of grub to be had.
