Happy Friday, folks! There’s really nothing better than the sweet freedom of a Friday afternoon. On my drive home from work on this particular Friday, I spotted something odd. Food trucks. In Lexington.
I was overcome with excitement.
As soon as I walked in the door, I told Eric that we needed to go on a walk. And we needed to visit a food truck.
Luckily, Eric and I were both unusually hungry for 3:30 in the afternoon, so we decided to get an early dinner at one of these mystery food carts. So we walked down the road and dined at a little BBQ truck called Bradford BBQ, where we were served pulled pork (chicken for me) sandwiches, chips, coleslaw, and a drink. Delicious.
Unfortunately, the food truck world is a little complicated in Lexington, so the vendors will only be on the corner of Vine St. and Main St. (across from Thoroughbred Park) today and tomorrow. You can read all about the “Free the Food Trucks” movement in downtown Lexington in this lovely article. I am all about getting food trucks on the streets of Lexington. It may be my insane attachment to Charlie’s Donut Truck (the home of the most delicious blueberry cake donut you can imagine, located in Alys Beach, Florida), but I just love the idea of local vendors providing inexpensive food in a convenient location. Maybe I’ll even start a food truck of my own…
After dinner, we strolled the streets, trying to enjoy every last bit of this nice weather before the rain sets in for the weekend. It is glorious out there, folks.
Anywho, other than eating early bird dinners from food trucks, we have a few other exciting weekend plans. Sojourn Music is coming to town tonight! Sojourn is the church we love to attend when we’re back in Louisville. It’s home to some of the most talented musicians I’ve ever heard. I’m so pumped for an entire evening of worship with them.
And to continue the exciting weekend, we’re planning to hit up the Kentucky Theater for a showing of Blue Like Jazz. The movie is based on the book (also titled “Blue Like Jazz”) by Donald Miller (my favorite author of all time). I know that this movie has been in the works for a long time, and I’m kind of afraid that it’s going to be terrible and have absolutely nothing to do with the book at all, but I want to see it and support Donald Miller (once again, my favorite author of all time).
Enjoy your weekend!
