Virginia Beach embraces the relatively new gourmet food truck phenomenon, and creates a food truck park for them to get together: The Hub



At 712 Atlantic Ave, a block from the beach,
The Hub is the brainchild of Cassandra Ayala and Nichole and John Malbon, who run Eat the Streets 757, a network of nearly 20 local food trucks for corporate events and parties. This weekend is a soft opening, Malbon said. The grand opening will be June 20.

The Hub is modeled after a food truck park in a San Francisco neighborhood, Malbon said. Each day of the week will feature an assortment of choices from trucks parked along the north edge of the park, except on Mondays, when the park's closed.

Themed nights are planned: Tuesday is "Barefoot Market," a farm-to-truck event. Hashi, Wrap-N-Roll and Bodacious Pizza will serve locally sourced food, and children will eat free. Wednesday is "Local Night," and Thursday is "Mother Trucker Night," with all female vendors.

"TGIF" Fridays will expand to a twice-monthly "Tap Takeover" featuring Virginia brews. Weekends will continue with Foodie Festival Saturdays and all-day brunch on Sundays.
