If you love eating your meals outdoors during the summer, you are going to LOVE the new summer event Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens announced yesterday: FOOD TRUCK TUESDAYS!

Each Tuesday night (starting May 28) five food trucks will be at the Nicholas Conservatory serving up their deliciousness for purchase, and a cash bar will also be available from Prairie Street Brewing Company.

The food trucks that will be participating throughout the summer are: 15th & Chris, Wok n' Roll, Bell's Churros, Flying Pig, Hicks BBQ, Kona Ice, Olive Branch, Olivo Tacos, Veebo's Pizza, and You're Bacon Me Crazy.

There is no admission fee for Food Truck Tuesdays if you just want to bring your family to enjoy a picnic dinner outside, but the Nicholas Conservatory will be staying open until 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and offering a discounted admission rate so you can enjoy the beauty both inside and out.
