Truck Yeah Mobile Meetup Coming to Lower East Side in October
The “artisinal” food truck phenomenon, from ice cream to burritos, has definitely reached its tipping point. These roving kitchens are everywhere, and definitely over-hyped. All the buzz eventually resulted in the annual food truck festival, this year at the South Street Seaport. Now a month later, the Lower East Side is set to welcome its own such event.

Truck Yeah, an obvious play-on-naughty words, is a “mobile meetup” to debut in the municipal parking lot at the corner of Broome and Ludlow on October 2. The endeavor is a joint venture between the Lower East Side BID, Gawker Artists, Art Cart, and Etta Place, which aims to bring a melting pot of sanctioned food and arts to the streets of the Lower East Side. A group of ten trucks will reportedly “convene to celebrate the increased mobility and changing landscape of New York City.”
Below is a list of the participants:
Art Cart NYC
Bang Bang NYC
Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches
El Camino ARTRV
Green Pirate Juice Truck
Lonely Goat Dance Company
Rickshaw Dumpling Truck
Tiffany Nicole’s Mobile Vintage Shop
The Mud Truck
Meanwhile, a week-old Kickstarter campaign for Truck Yeah is in full effect to help raise $8,000. Half the goal has been collected.
