If you wish to tweet me: please use hashtag #Greatfoodtruckrace or #Amarillo so I can locate it easier. 
On the weekends, I am not able to access my blog as often, so follow my tweets and RT’s for updates.  I’ll do a recap of the city on Monday (or Tuesday at the latest)

Four food trucks to be at Homer’s Backyard Ball on Saturday

According to Brooke Hale, Marketing Director of Homer’s Backyard Ball, they are expecting at least 4 of the food trucks to set up at  Homer’s Backyard Ball this Saturday!  So not only can get get live music, BBQ and fun, you can help your favorite Great Food Truck Race Truck win this elimination round.  (Blog note: there’s a cost to get into the event, in addition to paying for food)

Update: the GFTR had to leave Homer’s Ball because the noise was making it difficult to film.  Great venue… too bad.

Looks like Jim Lexa from the Amarillo Globe-News gave the food trucks a thumbs up….  But the GFTR received mixed reviews according to the AZ Daily Sun.
