Summer ain’t over yet, and the fine folks at the Empty Bottle are throwing a hell of a shindig this weekend.

This is the second year of the Logan Square Food Truck Social which will feature over 24 food trucks a day, including El Patron, Modern Jamaican Grill, Da Lobsta, 5411 Empanadas, Pierogi Wagon and much more.

The event is all ages and family friendly. The cover is only a $5 suggested donation, of which a portion of the proceeds will go to the Illinois Food Truck Owners Association and La Casa Norte / Northwest Food Partners Network.

Trucks will be lined up along Humboldt Boulevard between Armitage and Bloomingdale. Feel free to grab a bite then check out the sights from the nearby Bloomingdale Trail. You can also grab a “Sampler Ticket” ahead of time and a few retail vendors will be setting up shop as well.

Not only will there be delicious food, but the Empty Bottle has put together a stacked lineup of bands to play throughout all three days.

Headliners throughout the weekend include Detroit garage rockers the Gories on Friday, Long Island psych-blues group Endless Boogie on Saturday and closing things out Sunday night is local dub/jazz/punk/everything group the Eternals 6.

Some other great local acts to check out over the weekend include Skip Church, Cafe Racer, Sports Boyfriend, Radio Shaq, and Mykele Deville.

There will also be a DJ stage, featuring members of Hozac, International Anthem, Numero Group and others spinning far out tunes throughout the day.

Check out the full list of food trucks and music schedule below and hope this will tide you over until we finally get taco trucks on every corner.
