With spring in full swing, the first Friday on the Green is upon us. Head to Magnolia Green (1201 Lipscomb St, 817-923-1649) on the Near Southside for live music from 5pm to 10pm with headliners Pablo & The Hemphill 7. Wandering Roots will be on-site, and I’m sure the Friday on the Green Market will have some foodie finds to take home from the various vendors. As for the many on-site culinary options, here are eight to check out. (Or nine, as it were, but who’s counting?)
Crazy Burger (817-583-3751) is a Fort Worth-based food truck usually docked at Clearfork Food Park (4801 Edwards Ranch Rd, Ste 105). To book them for your event, do a quick search on Facebook.
Cuisine for Healing (1614 Mistletoe Blvd, 817-921-2377) is a nonprofit committed to making nutritious, delicious food. Read more about them at CuisineforHealing.org.
