Five South Florida Food & Drink Events This Weekend: JA World Uncorked, Fort Lauderdale Bus Loop, and More
3. Food Truck Pile-Up
The Miami Dolphins; love 'em or leave 'em, they're what we've got. So why not party it up on their behalf at the Food Truck Pile-Up tonight (Friday) at the JM Lexus of Margate (5350 West Sample Rd.). The gathering is 5 to 10 p.m. with 17 food trucks rolling in to feed the football fans. AZ Canteen, Best French Fries, Dog Eat Dog, Lucille's on Wheels, and Slow Food Truck are among those scheduled to appear. Parking is free and the evening will include opportunities to have your photo taken with Dolphin cheerleaders and retired Dolphins. They'll also screen "More Than Perfect," the documentary about the 1972 undefeated season of the Dolphins.
