Food truck fiesta!
The Ginger Man hosted a "Taste of Dallas" food-truck throwdown on Saturday, featuring six local food trucks: Nammi, Jack's Chowhound, 3 Men and a Taco, Gandolfo's, The Butcher's Son, and Easy Slider. It was a balmy Saturday afternoon, and hundreds of people came out to grub and throw back a few brews under the sun.

The Ginger Man kept its back gate open so patrons could come and go between the food and the drink with ease -- a beautiful symbiosis. Here's a visual sample of the festivities.

More showing us the aftermath rather than promoting it up front????????

Instead we got a story about a chef berating his Yelp reviewers on his Facebook page.
