Street Food Cinema

This weekend I attended my first-ever movie in the park. LA has several companies that put on these events each summer and I've wanted to go for years. When I saw a Living Social for Street Food Cinema offering two tickets for $9 and noticed they were playing Mean Girls right near my apartment I was sold.

I brought along two of my blogging (and IRL) buds, Kathrin of Shop.School.Sleep. and Kate of Nautical By Nature, for an evening of food trucks, live music, and teen movie goodness.


Unfortunately it sprinkled on us for awhile (which is almost unheard of in LA!) making our blankets damp but luckily it wasn't too cold. Eventually it stopped just in time for sunset and despite that bump in the road the rest of the experience was so much fun! There were so many people and tons of food trucks so before the movie we chowed down on a variety of different food. Kathrin and I shared everything. We got delicious tacos from the Vizzi Truck, some solid sliders from Me So Hungry, and - my favorite of the night - amazing apple fries from The Fry Girl. By the time we were done eating Mean Girls was just starting so we made ourselves comfy and enjoyed the movie.
