Simple Math: Food Trucks + Friends = Fun

Food trucks.jpg

Its no secret that we at What's Up Downtown Orinda are fans of food trucks.  Who doesn't welcome the opportunity to get out of the house on Thursday evening and gather with friends and family for a little food and fun ... all conveniently located in our very own downtown.  Bonus: we don't have to do the cooking.

Since last Summer, we have been enjoying Orinda's Taste of the World Thursday Night Street Feast.  Our sense is that many of you have been, too.  Did you know that next Monday, May 14th at 7pm the City Council will be looking into making the weekly Thursday night food truck pilot program a permanent fixture on Orinda's event calendar?  After engaging in a formal RFP process, the council will be reviewing a proposal from Taste of the World Market and discussing what shape this event will take going forward.

We would love to know how you feel about the Thursday Night Street Feast.  Do you love it and want to see the event continue?  Can it be improved?  Haven't been yet?  Well, why not?  Want to see more events like it?  Please send your feedback to City Clerk Sheri Smith at, or better yet, come to the City Council Meeting on Monday, May 14th at 7pm and be a part of the process.
