And what goes better with greasy food truck delicacies than a classic beer! The event also features Rainhard Brewing, a local brewery that makes a delicious Sweetback’s Milk Stout, and Gold 2018-Best North American pale ale.
The event will be open on Friday, Nov. 23rd from 4:30-11pm at Resurrection Rd and Bloor St. West, perfect for an after-work bite or late-night stop. The event itself is free, not including food and drinks. So, loosen your belts and let yourself indulge in a little Friday night food truck extravaganza!
