I’m writing this on Wednesday, November 19th, a day that many areas in and surrounding the City of Buffalo have been pummeled with upwards of 5 feet of snow, while my Allentown home and the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County (BBBSEC) offices in North Buffalo are relatively unscathed.

As Larkin Square’s Food Truck Tuesday has become one of Buffalo’s biggest dinner parties, the success of the six-month season that ended in October called for an encore – enter Food Truck Turkey, set for the perfect occasion of one of Buffalo’s biggest social nights, Thanksgiving Eve.
While the 30+ food trucks from Buffalo and Rochester will not necessarily be serving Thanksgiving dinner staples, the spirit of the season will be felt in Larkin Square – live music will be provided by Buffalo band Gravy, named after their claim to “cover everything” with a fresh and funky twist, and the Salvation Army will be on site with a goal of “stuffing the truck” with donations of food and winter clothing.
