Our Food Truck Derby is our favorite event of the summer—and it turns out that it’s a favorite event, period, for some of the participating food trucks, too. It’s easy to understand why. Henry James said the most beautiful phrase in the English language is “summer afternoon;” our Derby takes a summer afternoon and adds three key ingredients: the Hamptons, drinks, and plenty of food. Upgrade!
Here are 10 things we’re especially looking forward to eating and drinking this Friday:
Because: FRYDAY is our favorite day of the week and Eat Me, Drink Me’s fries are always a highlight of our Derby.
Need a way to shake off your Monday blues? Grab some Sweet'tauk Lemonade and family/friends and head down to Sagg Main Beach in Sagaponack, NY and enjoy the drum circle at around 6:00pm! ??? #sweettauk #sweettauklemonade #drumcircle #drum #beach #beachfun #summer #summervibes #summerfun #family #familyfun #dance #lemonade #saggmainbeach #hamptons #hamptonslife
Because: Beyoncé, we’re really happy for you and we’re gonna let you finish, but Sweet’tauk’s lemonade is the greatest of all time.
Because: We’ve always dreamed of being in a love triangle with chocolate chip cookies, Oreos, and brownies.
Because: Empanadas. It’s self-explanatory.
Because: We’ve been known to eat Old School Favorite’s Chocolate Sauze by the spoonful—and our Food Truck Derby is a judgement-free zone.
Because: There’s nothing better than a glass of Wölffer rosé in the summer.
Because: Cheesesteak sliders combine all the best parts of a normal-sized cheesesteak—namely, the steak and cheese—without any of the mess.
Because: Tacos from Noah’s are practically a food group for us, and these—served with grilled pineapple salsa and chipotle aioli—are making us hungry already.
Because: They’ll be served with Sea Bean’s much-beloved tomato jam—and what’s not to love about local, organic squash?
Because: Let’s be real—if it’s good enough for Martha, it’s good enough for us.
