rodeo, and the blues.





one of my favorite things about durham is the food truck culture. this sunday was the spring food truck rodeo right downtown. and, it was the second of two beautiful spring days we have had. we were soaking it up! about sixty different food trucks parked at the central market. and (it seemed like) every single durham resident was there.

we headed over after church with my parents, determined to show them a real good durham time. and my sweet friend mary met us there too!  i did some major eating from the triangle raw foods truck. my mom and mary couldn’t resist boxcarr farm’s sweet potato ravioli with mascarpone and arugula. adam and dad got some sandwiches which i am pretty sure involved a lot of pimento cheese and grease. and naturally, much fullsteam beer was consumed. as pictured. #myfamdoublefists.

the line for parlour was about a mile long so we settled for the next best thing, at locopops.

the best part of all was watching dad camp out in front of this guy playing the blues. my dad is a sucker for the blues. he stood there tapping his foot and clapping the entire time we were getting food. and then he invited him to church on easter. and gave him a pint of fullsteam. in one fail swoop. i love my dad.


what did you do this weekend? is spring arriving where you live? what fun springtime events are you looking forward to?
