With Jack’s Throwback Show coming up this weekend, there is more on our minds than the awesome lineup of bands, the amazing venue, and the many opportunities for drinks. One thing that we really cannot wait for is the Nosh Pit. What is the Nosh Pit you ask?
The Nosh Pit is an area specifically made for food trucks. Yeah, I said it: Food Trucks. Probably one of the best creations since the taco itself, the Food Truck is the apex of mobile eatery goodness. What kind of food trucks can we expect to be at Throwback this weekend? Well, we’re not exactly sure yet, but we have created a list of the top 15 Food Trucks that we hope to the Rock and Roll Gods will be present to whet our appetites on such an epic evening.
15. Seafood Truck – Anyone that can make salmon and shrimp mobile and delicious has got to be a genius. Extra tartar sauce please!
14. Hot Dog Truck – Take the classic hot dog stand from NYC and bump it up to an Air Conditioned truck for this classic Texas heat. That way I can get mustard, ketchup, Saur kraut, relish, onions, chili, cheese, peppers, and a little bit of horse radish for the next show.
13. Churro Truck – Everyone loves those little Mexican pastries. They’re quick, tasty, and fried. Where could you go wrong?
12. Breakfast Truck – Breakfast for dinner is one of the best decisions anyone can make on a Saturday night, but it’s always way too much work. Put some eggs, pancakes, and waffles in a food truck and I’m set for the rest of the week.
11. Chili Truck – A night with a good bowl of down-home Texas chili and a beer is a rock and roll dream.
10. Thai Noodle Truck – Sometime we’re feeling a little adventurous and want to try things like Pad Thai or Chow Mein and wash it down with a little Thai Iced Tea. Trust me, you will fall in love.
9. Burger Truck – Double meat and double cheese with pickles, onions, tomatoes, mustard, ketchup, and bacon. Nothing beats a good burger.
8. Mexican Food Truck – I hate having to sit at a restaurant for an hour just to get a good enchilada or tamale. Put it in a truck and bring it to Throwback so that I can satisfy my south-of-the-border cravings! Don’t forget the Tapatio!
7. Soul Food Truck – Grandma’s fried chicken and collard greens served with handmade cornbread. Enough said.
6. Crepe Truck – What the heck is a crepe and why do I want one from a truck? Believe me, you like crepes. From savory with turkey and cheese to sweet with bananas and chocolate, this Food Truck is definitely a must.
5. Sandwich Truck – Philly Cheese steaks, Hoagies, Meatball Subs, etc. A classic sandwich is always a plus at Throwback.
4. Cupcake Truck – When it starts getting into those late hours and the bands are closing out, a nice Red Velvet cupcake will just wash everything down to perfection. Add a classic chocolate cupcake for the road and your night will officially be capped.
3. BBQ Truck – Slather up some Brisket with a sweet, tangy barbeque sauce and throw in a rack of ribs. That is the perfect Texas meal.
2. Slice Truck – A classic Pizza Slice Truck is a must at an event like this. Easy to carry, easy to eat, easy to love.
1. Taco Truck – Tell me you don’t get excited when you see the Taco Truck outside your office building on Thursday afternoons. Go ahead. That’s right, you can’t! Because the Taco Truck is the apex of Food Truck gourmet establishments. How can you beat a nice, crunchy taco filled with beans, meat, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, and guacamole? I know, with three of them. Sign me up!
Now, there is no guarantee that any of these trucks will in fact be at Jack’s Throwback this weekend, but we’re allowed to dream because, you know, we do what we want. And if in fact some of these trucks do appear at the Nosh Pit on Saturday, we’ll know exactly how to react.
