PLAY date By Allison Hancin Laughs lingering from a game of tag. Arms reaching over the table to steal a taste. Diving in, fork nowhere in sight, to a heaping pile of nachos. It's a scene that at any other family dinner outing would cause a parent to panic, but not here. Welcome to the weekly Cotswold Trucks Food Truck Rally, where sampling from others' plates is encouraged, and everyone orders from the kids' menu. Each Friday night, the hum of Charlotte's best food trucks fills the Cotswold neighborhood, inviting families from around the city to dig in. Offering gourmet grilled cheese creations, specialty tacos and everything in between, these kitchens-on- wheels aim to please both your pickiest eater and most sophisticated palate. Half the fun is browsing each creative menu item and challenging every preconceived notion you (and your chefs-in-training) had about eating from a truck. One by one, orders are called, and food is claimed. When everyone gathers around the community picnic tables with their selections, the possibilities of discovering something new are endless. With up to 10 trucks on-site every week, you can switch it up as much or as little as you'd like, making a beeline for your go-to food truck or lining up to try the latest culinary trend. Hosted at Trinity Presbyterian Church on Providence Road, this family-focused rally features a gated playground and plenty of lawn space perfect for picnics. Live music adds to the laid-back atmosphere, while easily accessible parking and indoor restrooms leave more time to bond over dessert. Dogs are welcome, making it a true family outing. The Cotswold Trucks Food Truck Rally will run every Friday through the fall. Plan your play date at the Cotswold Trucks Food Truck Rally at cotswoldtrucks2017 WITH A LITTLE BIT OF IMAGINATION AND A LOT OF ADVENTURE, EMBARK ON THIS PERFECT FAMILY- FRIENDLY PLAY DATE.
