We’ve got a number of food truck updates that we’re packing into this one post.
Food Junkets has the details on Casa Brazil, a new Brazilian barbecue truck that should be hitting the streets this week.

The Brazilian native plans on making showing up at 33rd and Arch and other spots around West Philadelphia. Stay tuned for his first day out.
It doesn’t take much to realize that Philly loves its beer gardens. From Fishtown to the Art Museum, beer gardens are popping up everywhere. And Joe Sixpack took notice; today he wrote an article on the phenomena. “Beer gardens are suddenly so popular, the city’s tourism marketing agency is promoting a series of visits on Friday afternoons this summer.”
