Meals With Wheels

What’s that delicious aroma wafting from the scenic grassy terraces of Hartford’s riverfront plaza? Probably some combination of Cheesesteakissimo, Maui Wowi, New Haven Pizza, Four Flours Baking Company, Taco Tequila, Ben & Jerry’s, Caribbean Food Concepts, Joe’s Yellow Sub Machine, Cutie Pies, EZ StrEATS, Poutine Gourmet, and 20-odd other food trucks at Hartford’s three-day (second annual) food truck fest. Also included in your visit: lunchtime yoga classes, a cornhole tournament, a capella performances, and a Taylor Swift tribute show. #squadgoals. 

Riverfront Food Truck Festival: Thursday to Saturday, July 7-9, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mortensen Riverfront Plaza, 300 Columbus Blvd., Hartford. (860) 713-3131,
