The first in our summer series “What’s Happening?” by our very own intern, Patrick Dunne, combines the love of community and the passion for food in this piece about Food Truck Friday Hopewell. Hope to see you there, neighbors!This Friday, June 24th, the lovely town of Hopewell is hosting a Food Truck Friday event that is sure to be a huge hit for the whole family. It will take place from 5-9, rain or shine, but it definitely looks as if it will be a gorgeous night for this event. Parking shouldn’t be a problem as many of the side streets, including Model Ave, Hart Ave and Golden Ave, have available curbside parking. A popular option is to park along the main street of Hopewell (Broad Street) and walk through the beautiful and historic town.
The nine food trucks slated for Food Truck Friday Hopewell include Nomad Pizza, Four Daughters Franks, Tot Cart, Surf and Turf Truck, Mrs. Fu’s Yummy Food Truck (Asian Food), Whirly Food, The Feed Truck, and Oink and Moo. Nomad Pizza originated in Hopewell and has now expanded into Princeton and their fresh ingredients on a wood fired brick oven pizza is a must try. Food Truck Friday has increased its variety this year with the addition of an Asian food option provided by Mrs. Fu’s Yummy Food Truck which only uses quality ingredients and serves classic Asian dishes like fried dumplings but also making creative new dishes like their rice burger – Korean BBQ beef between two rice buns.
Top off the night with the delicious desert options of Aunt Dee Dee’s Old Fashioned Oven Baked Goodness or Nina’s Waffles and Ice Cream. Aunt Dee Dee’s is known for its scrumptious blueberry cobbler. And you know it’s going to be a big event when Nina’s Waffles and Ice Cream asks to bring TWO food trucks. Music for the night will be taken care of by Big Soul Chicken who have a classic R&B vibe. Bring your lawn chairs, picnic blankets and friends but leave the alcohol at home as this is a family friendly alcohol-free event.
