The 101X Weekend Guide: October 18-20, 2019

Brought to you by UNation!

The weekend is here which means it's time to kick back and relax! Don't worry about finding stuff to do because we've narrowed down a list of some fun events happening near you.

UNation featured event

Austin Food Truck Taste-Off 25+ Food Trucks $10 Prize 10/19/19 @ Trucklandiafest

Austin Food Truck Taste-Off

OCT 19 | 12 PM - 6 PM |

Austin American-Statesman

Food trucks are a staple to us Austinites. You don’t live in Austin and not eat food from a food truck, it’s just not possible.

This Saturday is your opportunity to be a judge and help one tasty food truck take home the title of “Best Food Truck.” Your judge wristband includes samples from every food truck and one vote to give to your favorite. The lucky winner from the day will be taking home a $10,000 cash prize! There are only 1,000 “Judge” wristbands available and once they sell out you still have the opportunity to attend the festival as General Admission–however, GA does not cover any food samples. Kids under 12 receive free GA.

Some of the trucks you can expect to be at the taste-off are Teal House, Krack of Dawn Donuts, Cajun Skillet, Ze Wurst, Always Hungry, The Flour Truck, plus more. It’s going to be one tasty afternoon that you don’t want to miss out on!
