It was a festive scene Thursday night at the Bernice Garden on South Main Street for the inaugural Second Thursday Food Truck Night, with folks lining up to sample the wares of The Southern Gourmasian, Philly’s To Go, Clyde and Kiddo’s Barbecue, and Little Rock Urban Farming. In a part of town that’s woefully bereft of after-five dinner choices, the people we talked to seemed very happy to have a chance to get a bite to eat and mingle with other people from around the city in one of Little Rock’s most attractive settings. Despite a couple of the planned-for trucks being unable to make it out due to unforeseen circumstances, Thursday’s event was a strong start to the new monthly truck night. South Main is really developing into a neighborhood full of people who value community, and they’ll be the first ones to tell you how proud they are of the revitalization projects going on all around the area — and how much they enjoy events like this that allow them to show those projects off.
