  • Haven’t been able to update for the last couple weeks so there is a load of stuff to note. Anything you see i have missed, please email me.
  • Thanx to TastyTouring for the following news: The Eastside Food Trailer Park or E.A.T. (EastAustinEAT.com ) will be opening in June and intends to include not only food trailers but an outdoor park with seating and free wireless and host movies and live music events. E.A.T. is located at 2326 E Cezar Chavez. It’s adjacent to the Pink Building — a shared space for artists to create and show their work. The Gala Opening is now scheduled for June 5th from 11am – 10pm.

    Trailers will include A Little Dippy Donut Company (Sat 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.), Beso de Luna, from the team at El Sol y La Luna (Tues – Sun, 7 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.), and TREAT (formerly located at the South Austin Trailer Park & Eatery – hours will be Thursday – Saturday from 6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.).
