SoMa Second Thursdays are back in March

Food truck fans rejoice, because Chef Jeffrey Palsa is bringing back SoMa Second Thursdays to the Bernice Garden on March 14. The monthly event has some returning favorites, including Palsa's own The Food Truck, Southern Gourmasian, Clyde and Kiddo's Barbecue, and dessert truck Sugar Shack Sweets. If that's not exciting enough, the first event of 2013 will also mark the return of Green Cuisine, the popular vegetarian truck that has been on an extended hiatus.

In addition to those returning greats, two new trucks will be debuting on South Main: Kyle Pounder's Excaliburger, home of the burger-with-grilled-cheese-sandwich-buns (which we told you about here late last year), and a completely new truck concept in the Rock, Santa Lucia Pizzeria. Santa Lucia is owned by Jacquelyn and Jeremy Pittman, who some of you may be familiar with from Palette Catering in the Heights. I have word from Jeffrey that they've been seasoning the stone in their mobile wood-fired pizza oven by firing it up daily for the past month, so it's sure to be a much different pizza experience than anyone expects from a truck.

In addition to the good eats, there will a face-painter and outdoor games for the kids, and Loblolly Creamery will have their soda fountain open late. And as part of the eco-friendly mission of the Bernice Garden and SoMa neighborhood, the event is a low-waste affair, so patrons are asked to bring their own cups, forks, and knives (rinse stations will be available). These events were a lot of fun last year, and it looks like there's even more to be had coming up!
