Mobile gourmet restaurants that allow one to enjoy dining outside in different environments because, well…….they’re mobile is the “so unconventional it’s cool” thing to do this year. Gourmet food carts are a Texas phenomenon that started in Austin and has slowly made its way all across Texas. It truly feels cool taking part in this original experience, walking up to a food cart, ordering gourmet food, opening your own bottle of wine, and sitting in an atmosphere that mimics a restaurant.
Food Carts at the Festival
This year the Fort Worth Music Festival has confirmed that they will indeed have food carts there; the four food vendors so far are: Salsa Limon, The Yum Yum Food Truck, Big Dawg’s in Cowtown, and Snowie.
serves authentic Mexico City style tacos and “pushes the limits of quality and flavor to the highest level.” Salsa Limon serves a large variety of meat and vegetable toppings with homemade tortillas. At only a $1.50 each, breakfast tacos are offered as well. Salsa Limon will offer a selection between a few of their fabulous tacos at the Fort Worth Music Festival.
The Yum Yum Food Truck:
The Yum Yum Food Truck
has been making a positive impression on the Fort Worth community since it “pulled into Fort Worth
” in December of 2010. The original Yum Yum Food Truck calls the corner of 10th
& Taylor its home, but a twin truck parks at Houston St. & W. Weatherford St. Yum Yum’s menu offers a classic mix Tex-American menu with tacos, burritos, and burgers. The Yum Yum Truck will provide a delicious vegetarian option at the Fort Worth Music Festival.
Big Dawg in Cowtown:
Big Dawg’s in Cowtown
offers a selection of mouth-watering hotdogs that draw influence from various national recipes, including Southwest, Chicago-Style, and Tex-Mex. In addition to their obvious hot-dog specialty, Big Dawg’s In Cowtown also please the Texas community with a taco menu and wide selection of toppings to kick up the spice. Because Salsa Limon will be serving tacos, Big Dawg’s will focus solely on delivering delicious Dawgs at the Fort Worth Music Festival.
With summer temperatures lingering in the triple-digits, Texans know a thing or two about snow cones. Snowie
is a mobile vendor that serves “fluffy, flavor-retaining shaved ice” to the greater Fort Worth community. Snowie offers a unique flavor selection including classics like bubblegum and oddities such as the mysterious “Toxic Waste.” At The 2011 Fort Worth Music Festival, Snowie will be serving snow cones to beat the heat and beignets to warm the soul.

Modernizing Design and Technology – The Escalade
Gourmet food trucks were formulated by deconstructing an average taco cart and taking the most valuable elements and exaggerating them to enhance the overall experience. Being able to stay fresh and fashionable are vital components. Cadillac has reinvented itself over and over again since 1902, staying fresh while modernizing designs and technology.
The Cadillac Escalade continues to offer the most complete model lineup in its segment, with three distinct body styles and the Escalade Platinum models. The standard Escalade is complemented by the extended length ESV model and the innovative EXT model that features a reconfigurable cargo bed with a segment-exclusive midgate enabling the rear compartment to flex between passenger and cargo space.
Escalade Platinum is the highest expression of the brand’s dramatic design, luxury and technology. With features including segment-first LED headlamps and the world’s fastest-acting suspension, Magnetic Ride Control, it’s one of the most technically advanced vehicles in the segment.
Also available is the Escalade Hybrid, which delivers up to a 33-percent city fuel economy improvement without sacrificing the luxury features that define all Escalade models. A separate release outlining the Escalade Hybrid’s features is part of Cadillac’s 2011 product information.
