Food Truck Friday at Fifty Seven Degrees


One of my favorite days that Ryan and I have ever spent together happened on a lazy, rainy Sunday two years ago when we walked down the street to 57 Degrees, picked up two bottles of champagne and spent the afternoon watching hours of Daniel Tosh standup. Back then, rainy Sundays were the only Sundays Ryan could take off work and so they were always my favorite.

At the time, 57 Degrees was fairly new to the neighborhood, a huge event space that boasted a small wine bar, occasional tapas, a variety of wines available for purchase, and wine storage. But they had big plans and that afternoon they told us about their Food Truck Fridays happening every 3rd Friday of the month. Since then I've made it a point to try and make it whenever I can.

Today, 57 Degrees is closed on Sundays, but Ryan and I still get there a fair amount, usually with the dogs to enjoy a drink on their patio. Plus, they've opened their arms and their taps to San Diego's favorite alcohol (I mean, after Fireball and before wine): craft beer. With The Brew Project, they now offer one of the largest selections of local craft beers on tap. They also expanded their menu, added a pool table and a space for regular wine and painting nights, and more seating options.

All this means that Food Truck Fridays have only gotten that much cooler. I had a chance to go with my coworker yesterday for happy hour and chowed down on Devilicious's Asparagus Grilled Cheese and Parmesan Truffle Fries. We also stopped by one of my favorite food trucks, Two for the Road, where my coworker picked up a lobster roll and I contemplated a Whoopie Pie for dessert. 57 Degrees's next "Third Friday Food Truck Extravaganza" is on October 19th. Check the calendar to see which trucks are confirmed and head over if you can!
