May means the return of food trucks to Watertown! Several will be showing up at the Arsenal Project every Wednesday.
The Arsenal Project sent out the following announcement about the food and other fun coming this year:
The Arsenal Project is pleased to announce the return of the popular weekly food truck program, Food Truck Wednesdays, kicking off May 20. Five of Boston’s best gourmet food trucks will be rolling into the center’s parking lot this spring, summer, and fall. Food Truck Wednesdays at The Arsenal Project will offer a variety of food during lunchtime, providing a convenient, fun and delicious option for those living and working in the area.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring this well-received program back to the community for another great year,” said William McQuillan, President of Boylston Properties, co-developer of The Arsenal Project. “The response has been so positive we even added a truck! It is our goal for The Arsenal Project to be a true hub of the Watertown community; that’s why we are so proud of the success of Food Truck Wednesdays.”
The food trucks will be in the front parking lot of The Arsenal Project from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Wednesday. The series runs from May 20 through September 16.
Participating trucks include:
- The Bacon Truck – Bacon, bacon & more bacon!
- Bon Me – Bold, fresh and fun Vietnamese cuisine
- Munch Mobile Kitchen – Elevated American bistro cuisine
- Frozen Hoagies – Homemade ice cream sandwiches with a variety of cookies and ice cream flavors
- Uyghur Kitchen – Skewers, wraps & salads with your choice of marinated lamb or chicken kebab
Each Food Truck Wednesday will include a live band; and making the launch truly special, performer Brent McCoy will be onsite on May 20 to entertain the public with his one of a kind comedy routine. In his Real McCoy Show, he combines breathtaking circus stunts with lightning fast wit for a rollicking comic experience. Other entertainers and performers will be featured throughout the 18 week program, including a live circus act, a children’s story telling hour with Watertown Free Public Library, and other fun activities for kids. Check out The Arsenal Project website for details of scheduled entertainment.
