Meals on wheels? Sounds good to me!

For those who don’t read the Shepherd Express (and really, it’s everywhere in Milwaukee, so why wouldn’t you?), they are hosting an event this upcoming Friday at Catalano Square in Third Ward, called “Street Eats“. Essentially, it’s a gathering of food trucks from all over Milwaukee, with live music from J. Ryan Trio, beer from sponsor Lakefront Brewery on tap, and over 20 Milwaukee food trucks.

The event runs from 4-8pm on May 15th, so if you can swing out of work early that day, you’ll probably get the stuff that hasn’t sat around in a truck in May for an hour or two. (That’s not to say it won’t still be delicious, it just might not be quite as fresh.) Me? Not likely. I’ve got work until 5, all the way over in Wauwatosa, so I’ll probably be rolling in around 6 or 6:30. Keep in mind, though, the forecast calls for mid-70s and scattered thunderstorms, so if you want to come and hang around for a while, bring an umbrella and wear thinner clothes you won’t mind getting wet.

They seem inclined to mention on their site that they are selling Koozies and frisbee plates; those are cool, if you’re of a collecting nature, or you like merchandise that supports local Milwaukee ventures. For some reason, though, they don’t list prices for the strangely-required food tickets on Shepherd Express’ site.

The vendors are as follows:

*Restaurants marked with an asterisk are ones with permanent locations other than their truck.
