Comments () | Published June 15, 2011
Hey there, readers. We made a convenient Twitter list for you to follow all 53 food trucks in Washington (at least all 53 that we know about). Click here for the list; you don't need to have a Twitter account to follow it. Today, Dippin' Dots is giving out free goods to the first 500 people who show up at the truck from 3 to 7, when it'll be at the NoMa farmers market (First and M sts., NE). In honor of National Lobster Day (who knew it existed?), the Red Hook Lobster trucks are giving out free whoopie pies to the first 50 people in line. Locations and a map after the jump.
