Tropical Audubon Society’s native hardwood hammock and the historic Doc Thomas House patio provide the nostalgic High Pines setting for the Winter Food Truck Migration, part of the Tri-Annual series that hatched here last June. Patrons can forage for their supper among a dozen vendors; dine alfresco at communal picnic tables or tuck in under the chickee; slake their thirst at the donation Bird Bar stocked by community partner Republic National Distributing Co.; and wander The Steinberg Nature Center trails.
Guided tours of the historic Doc Thomas House are also on the menu.
A choir of birds roosting in the canopy above will sing the sun to bed.
The “Migration” is organized by Steve Simon of Food Truck Invasion; admission is free to the public; each vendor tithes a portion of their proceeds to TAS.
Gates open at 4 pm; vendors serve until 8 pm, rain or shine.
