Food Trucks, Craft Brewers Headed to Cary

Cary is jumping on the food wagon trend, as one local business hosts the first-ever Cary Food Truck Rally & Local Craft Beer Expo on Friday night, Nov. 8 from 5 to 9 p.m.

Drew Schenck, proprietor of Rally Point Sport Grill in Cary, is organizer of this inaugural effort and hopes the idea will appeal to locals, and serve as a benefit for the North Carolina Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Ten percent of event sales will go directly to the organization.  

“I would like to bring the 'street food' scene to Cary,” Schenck said. “Raleigh and Durham have done a great job with this and I don't want to see Cary left behind. I also look at it as a great opportunity to support LLS.

“Visitors will be treated to some of the area's hottest and most popular food trucks, as well as several of the area's breweries. Street food and craft beer; does it get any better?” he said.

Also on tap, so to speak, is Grateful Dead tribute band Better Off Dead, playing at 8 p.m., with no cover charge.

The Food Truck Rally will be held outside Rally Point, in the parking lot of Harrison Square Shopping Center. Schenck says food trucks confirmed to date include Chirba Chirba Dumpling,; King Creole,; and Palez-Vous Crepes,

With no cover charges, attendees can buy food directly from the trucks and are welcome to sit down and eat inside Rally Point, where the craft beer booths will be set up. 

Craft beer makers scheduled to have booths include Foothills Brewing,; Double Barley Brewing,; Old Bull Brewing; Natty Greene’s,; and French Broad Brewery,
