3rd Annual Peace, Love & Grant Street

Come out this Thursday (December 5th) from 4-8PM to kick-start your holiday shopping with the 3rd Annual Peace, Love & Grant Street celebration.

The weather looks like it’s going to cooperate with little chance of snow and the high near 40 degrees – perfect December weather for exploring the many shops, food trucks and vendors along Grant St.

Visitors to this years event can either explore Grant Street on foot or use the trolley that will be available to shoppers for the evening.  The evening will feature shopping at many businesses, work by local artists, live music, food trucks, free holiday movies (at the Grant Street Neighborhood Center) and even Santa Claus himself!

Stop by the Gypsy Parlor (376 Grant St) for the after party and indulge in free Hors D’oeuvres, local & seasonal beers and much more.

All of the food trucks will be parked in the lot at the corner of Grant and Potomac.  Click here for more information about this year’s Peace, Love and Grant Street we’re looking forward to seeing you!

Truck or Treat – the Last Food Truck Tuesday of 2013 at Larkin Square

It has finally come to an end.  This Tuesday (October 29) is Larkin Square’s final Food Truck Tuesday of 2013 .  It is sad , but it’s been an amazing season for everyone,  the trucks  and customers, who came down to grab something to eat and explore a revitalized part of the city.  We hope you can come out this week because, without a doubt,  it’s going to be a spectacular night.

In honor of Halloween everyone is encouraged to dress up in costume (you’ll get a $1 off your drink from the trucks)! Make sure the kids bring a bag or pillow case or bucket – any kind of candy carrying vessel – because they are all welcome to go truck to truck TRICK OR TREATING!

And finally (and this is off the charts cool) the amazing Grateful Dead cover band Workingman’s Dead is going to perform! But this is not just a typical show, they will be playing the Dead’s set from their 1990 show at Rich Stadium!  None of the traffic hassle with trying to get to the stadium, no stress waiting  for A Miracle, no sadness in realizing that you just saw one of the last shows Brent Mydland ever played (he died 10 days after the Buffalo show) just all of the amazing music from that magical Summer night!

The night’s party starts at 5 and we’ll be serving until the party stops at 8.

This is going to be so incredible you’ll kick yourself if you don’t go!  A couple hours in the cold wouldn’t be unbearable. It ends at 8PM so you can’t say you don’t want to be out late!  Come out, enjoy the last little bit of your summer routine! Hear some spectacular music! Eat delicious food (and pick something up for lunch on Wednesday)! It’s a perfect way to spend the last Tuesday of October 2013.
