If you’re on a diet, and you plan on spending next weekend in East Cambridge, you may want to make Saturday, June 8 a “cheat” day. That’s when more than twenty food trucks will gather in Kendall Square for the first Cambridge Food Truck Festival.
From 11am to 5pm, the scents of savory banh mi, crispy crepes, and decadent cupcakes will fill the air at the intersection of 3rd St. and Broadway. Wristbands will cost $10 at the event, but you can buy them for just $7 if you purchase online, with $1 of each wristband sale going to charity. Walk-up diners are more than welcome, but people with a wristband will enjoy discounted prices. The event is sure to be a great time, and while I’m not a certified nutritionist, I’m unofficially giving everyone permission to splurge next Saturday. Belts have extra notches for a reason, right?
