Food trucks find parking in food halls

Seventh Street Truck Park in St. Paul, Minn., includes three bars and a rotating assortment of food trucks, all assembled under a retro ’70s decor designed to keep diners warm on even the coldest Minnesota day. “The food truck craze took off, and I wanted a way to bring the concept indoors,” owner Brian Ingram told the Pioneer Press. “We set this up like a campground. Our summers are so short in Minnesota, we like to feel like we’re outside as much as possible.” 

Meanwhile, in San Diego, there’s Trailer Park After Dark, an underground bar that features four vintage trailers—one that’s used as a kitchen and three others for private events. The menu includes comfort foods like Frito pies, hot dogs and sloppy Joes.
