Sandy Springs resident Tommy Burda was pumped to pour brews again.
On June 10, the owner of Dunwoody-based Moondog Growlers attended his first event since the pandemic, Dunwoody’s Food Truck Thursdays. Burda may be a familiar face as he’s “that beer guy” who carts his craft beer tap trailer to community events.
Burda was excited to be back to “a little normalcy” and reunited with his neighbors and friends.
“I like to be out with the people,” he said, huddled under his tent as a summer rainstorm briefly stalled the event. But as soon as the sun reappeared, so did the people, eagerly walking up to mobile eateries to order street food such as crab cake sandwiches and jerk chicken tacos.
That’s right, food trucks are rolling back into the community after more than a year of being away. Along with Dunwoody’s Thursday event, Brookhaven just relaunched its Food Truck Nights, held Wednesday evening at Blackburn Park.
“We are so glad to be back in the heart of your community,” Brookhaven organizers said June 16 on Facebook after the first event returned.
