Second Saturday Street Food Fest at Wynwood: Bigger and Better
Dim Ssam a Gogo's Richard Hales has revamped the Wynwood truck roundup.
Your second Saturday of the month just got bigger and better, thanks to Sakaya Kitchen and Dim Ssäm à gogo's Richard Hales.
Hales, organizer of the monthly food truck roundup in Wynwood during the neighborhood's second Saturdays art walk, has decided to up the ante of the event, bringing live music, a DJ, local clothing and jewelry vendors, a full cash bar, and priority secured parking.
Hales, who recently opened his second Sakaya Kitchen location in downtown Miami, has been taking a step back from the food truck scene. Instead of taking his Dim Ssäm à gogo truck out nightly, Hales is concentrating on quality over quantity. He's teamed up with Burger Beast and City Style Collective to host the Second Saturday Street Food Fest.
Hales is charged with curating the trucks for the event, while Style Collective is working with local crafts people to gather a group of about 20 vendors offering unusual and competitively-priced items for sale.
Musical entertainment will be provided by Alabao, an all-star cast of
Miami-based band leaders who perform original music with a Caribbean
vibe. DJ AKA will also be on hand to spin old and new school pop, rock,
and hip hop.
Premium on-site parking will be available for $10, which alleviates some
of the hassle of finding a spot during the insanely busy evening.
and Dog Eat Dog.
Dessert trucks include Fireman Derek's Famous Pies, Sugar Yummy Mama, SugarRush, Dolci Peccati, and Boba Station.
The Wynwood Street Food Fest, which runs from 6 p.m. ro midnight, is located at 210 NW 22nd Lane, Miami.
