First D.C. food truck week to start Friday

From the gooey masterpieces of CapMac to the sugar rush that Captain Cookie promises to deliver every customer, food trucks have become an H Street staple for students.

But the popularity of food trucks extends well beyond Foggy Bottom. Friday marks the beginning of the first-ever food truck week, a celebration in D.C., Maryland and Virginia that lasts until June 14.

The festival will feature some less familiar options, like Borinquen Lunch Box, DC Slices, Curbside Cupcakes, Doug the Food Dude, PhoWheels, Red Hook Lobster Pound DC and Sinplicity Ice Cream. Alexandria will also host a food truck rodeo Friday, and other events will take place in locations across the D.C. area every day for the next week.

Trucks will head to local breweries for Saturday’s festivities, while happenings later in the week include a social and Father’s Day celebration.
