With summer about to wrap up, I'm taking every opportunity I can to soak up the very last bit of the season's activities. Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit Street Food Cinema for the first time--an outdoor movie screening complete with live music and several popular food trucks.
Exposition Park with an '80s themed double-header of Valley Girl and Sixteen Candles. A DJ spun some tunes while the some 2,000 guests visited the various food trucks and sponsor booths. A live cover band performed just before the first movie started rolling on the giant inflatable screen.
My friends and I snagged a great spot near the front of the screen, with sheets, pillows, and champagne in tow. Along with the various food trucks, Moviefone offered free popcorn in interesting flavors like white truffle and sea salt. We tasted the fire roasted corn and black bean guacamole with jumbo lump crab, garlic and manchego curly fries, and a scallop slider from The Slummin' Gourmet and a basic burger from Rounds Premium Burgers.
If you're in L.A., be sure to stop one of the remaining Street Food Cinema screenings. Due to its success, the organization extended its season through September 22. It's the perfect way to spend a lazy summer evening!
