New Brewery District food truck fest

Beth Stallings, Columbus Crave

Food Truck First Thursdays kicks off tonight, June 5, in the Brewery District. It's the first of a series of monthly food truck gatherings around Brewmasters Gate on Front and Liberty streets that will run the first Thursday of every month through November (there's no ruling yet on whether July's event will be July 3 or 10).

From 4:30 to 9 p.m. tonight, expect nearly a dozen food trucks, live tunes from local band Honey Compass and beer stations run by World of Beer inside Brewmasters Gate. The gathering, a joint effort from the Brewery District Trade Association and the Central Ohio Food Truck Association, is designed to bring diners to the growing Brewery District neighborhood.
