Second Thursday Truck Night coming to South Main

Chef Jeffrey Palsa has been operating The Food Truck in Little Rock for a couple of years now, serving up hot gourmet sandwiches and and soups with a cheerful smile and a ready laugh. After a hot, dry summer that proved difficult for many of our local trucks, Palsa wanted to reignite excitement in the food truck scene, deciding to create a monthly truck even in the SoMa neighborhood called Second Thursday Truck Night. The event will be held on September 13 from 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Bernice Garden and will continue throughout the fall every second Thursday of the month. Chef Palsa chose evenings for his event in order to bring people down to a neighborhood that doesn't have many options for dining out past five o'clock, although he stresses that the ladies of Loblolly Creamery will have their soda fountain in the Green Corner Store open for folks in need of ice cream or a fresh-made soda.

For the inaugural event, Palsa has lined up several of Little Rock's best trucks in addition to his own, including The Southern Gourmasian, Clyde & Kiddo's Barbecue, and Taqueria Samantha III. Little Rock Urban Farming will also have a booth set-up with flowers, Arkansas honey, and produce. The trucks are all planning specials for the event, including some kid-friendly dishes. There will be ample covered seating available so that everyone can enjoy their meals comfortably, and parking is located both next door to the garden as well as across the street.

If you haven't had a chance to try these trucks, or would like to get a taste of things to come during the upcoming Main Street Food Truck Festival, this new food truck event is the perfect opportunity to come down to SoMa, enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the sculpture garden, and sample a lot of really great food. Bernice Garden is located at 1401 S. Main in Little Rock.
