Barreled 2013 date night

Last week the girl and I had a fun date night and attended a great event that was put on by Dulce Vida Tequila, Barreled 2013. It was their inaugural Barreled event and was a great way to kick off the pre-SXSW activities with some good food, music and company. The set-up was awesome with food trucks in the parking lot and barrels stood up on end for tables for people to pull up at and enjoy some tasty guacamole and tacos. They even took some old wooden pallets and turned them into swinging benches inside the warehouse which helped create a really fun vibe and atmosphere. Not to mention they partnered with Collings Guitars to put on some great live music featuring local musicians such as MilkDrive, Redd Volkert and Sons of Fathers!

Now that's a way to welcome your guests! A huge logo projected on the side of a warehouse.

A photographer with a nice set-up greeted you as soon as you walked in the door. Say "Cheese"!

Strings of light across the warehouse really helped set the mood.

Guac N Roll was there and we got to try all three kinds of guacamole they had. Who doesn't love avocado?

The Peached Tortilla food truck was in attendance and had their usual great tacos and brussel sprouts with bacon jam.

At first I thought it said "pickled lobster" and was completely confused until the girl corrected me. :)

Dock & Roll Diner had some great poppers and at first I thought it said “fresh pickled lobster” and was completely confused until the girl corrected me.

Food Truck – Part 1

After watching the new episodes this season of The Great Food Truck Race it has only further validated to me that I think it would be awesome to own a food truck. I’ve started to try and brainstorm ideas for what my food truck would be and after talking it over with the girl, we think that it would be super sweet to have a food truck that is half bakery/half regular food. We’re still working on what type of food cuisine we would feature and a name…but the wheels have started spinning! (Figuratively of course)
