ST. LOUIS — A taste of summer is back starting this week. Sauce Magazine's Food Truck Friday at Tower Grove Park returns to south St. Louis starting this Friday.
The event will kick off with 22 local trucks lined up along Southwest Drive between Tower Grove Avenue and Kingshighway Boulevard from 4-8 p.m.
Drivers can not enter at the Kingshighway entrance. Visitors should park on Magnolia Avenue or Arsenal Street. Signage will point visitors in the correct direction.
The event is pet-friendly, and patrons are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to sit in the park.
Friday's lineup includes Mission Taco, Soul Burgers, Doughboy's Pizza and Buzz's Hawaiian Grill.
If you want to skip the line at your favorite truck, you can purchase a speed pass. The pass allows you to use the expedited line one time at one truck. They can be purchased online or in person and can only be used during the Food Truck Friday event in which it was issued.
In addition to the food, alcohol will be available for purchase. They include beer from 4 Hands and Schlafly, wine from Noboleis Vineyards and frozen cocktails from Narwhal’s Crafted.
The event also includes live music.
