Artpace advocates the food truck pilot program
We started Taco Friday at Artpace in 2009 and the weekly pop-up lunch in our courtyard has been a big hit with the community ever since. Taco Friday allows us to reach out to a whole new audience we might have not captured as walk-ins and passersby. Not only is El Tacomiendo, our Taco Truck-in-Residence, delicious, but what better way to relax, eat good food, and explore some contemporary art?
The Council meeting went well. They approved the pilot program and our own District 1 Councilman Diego Bernal highlighted Artpace as one of the “coolest places downtown.” It’s our hope that the city will go forth and embrace a new generation of local chefs and entrepreneurs who have a lot to offer a city that values its food culture. See you at Taco Friday tomorrow!
