Between the Polar Vortex, a little mechanical issue and a long planned & much needed vacation – January was a cruel month for the Amy’s Truck. But we are very happy to let everyone know that we are back to our regular schedule. We’ve missed everyone and want to thank you all for your patience the past few weeks.
Our first day back serving will be February 4th behind City Hall on Court St 11:30-1:30.
After that you will find us at the First Niagara Center on Wednesday, Roswell Park on Thursday and the Larkin District on Friday. We will be serving our regular times (11:30-1:30) at each location.
If you didn’t know, you can always check our schedule at www.amysfoodtruck.com/calendar, friend us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/amystruckbuffalo) and follow us on twitter (@amys_truck) to get the most up to date information on where all the cool kids are getting lunch!
Thank you again for all of your support, we wouldn’t be were we are without. We can’t wait to see you and don’t forget – be happy that you’re hungry!
Alright folks it’s that time of year again! You know the time – baseball is over, our beloved Buffalo sports teams (both the Sabres and Bills) are iffy at best and continue to give us a false sense of hope game after game, Halloween and all its parties are over yet Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away and the craziness of the holiday season is just far enough off that it seems like we have all the time in the world to get ready.
We have the perfect plan for you this Sunday (November 3rd) – come out, watch, support and cheer for everyone at the Campus WheelWorks Cross in the Park 2013!
For all you bikers out there, this is a 2900 meter, USA Cycling Sanctioned CX race through Delaware Park. This is happening rain OR shine so bring your bike and your helmet (you can’t compete without one) and be ready. Pre-registration is $25 and $30 the day of. The start and finish in right near the stone bridge (near the Shakespeare in the Park stage) and is be a great way to start November and finish off the weekend
The races are staggered with the first one start promptly at 10AM. For more information about the event you can click here or call Campus at 716-881-3613
We hope to see you there! We were there last year – and the crowd and the bikers are a blast! Everyone has a great time.
Come and join us this Friday night (October 18, 2013) and celebrate the new permanent, outdoor installation at the Burchfield Penny Art Gallery (1300 Elmwood Ave). This installation is the first of it’s kind in the world, so there is no excuse NOT to come to the party!
There is going to be food trucks (US and a couple of those other guys) and a live musical performance by DME (led by Tomás Henriques). Then at sunset the three projection towers will turn on forever. This new installation is transforming the Gallery’s facade into a 24/7/365 media gallery!
