For those of you still grumbling that the lines at the Santa Anita Food Truck Fest were too long, here is another chance to catch some of your favorite trucks in action and all in the same vicinity. And, as an added bonus, you will be able to score some discounts at your favorite stores as well! So what is this magical night of shopping and food trucks? Melrose Night!
Melrose Night launched in January and will be held on the first Thursday of every month (read: TONIGHT). Melrose Night runs from 6-10pm and encompasses the area on Melrose between Stanley (where the Urban Outfitters is) and Ogden. So close to us! Love it.
There will usually be around 8-10 participating food trucks. Tonight’s trucks include: Buttermilk Truck (which will definitely be my first stop), Coolhaus, Dim Sum Truck (giving away a free sesame ball tonight with any order), Frysmith, Dosa Truck ($1 off promo on every combo for the night), India Jones, Komodo, Papas Tapas, Nom Nom, and of course everyone’s favorite, the Ludo truck.
And, after you are nice and full from your food truck eats, stick around for some one night only shopping deals at stores in the area. You can get 10% off your purchases at any of the following stores tonight: Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, Sportie LA, and Suru. Goorin Brothers will give you 15% and you can get 20% off at The Originators. If you’re a guy and need some grooming, 360 Atelier also has an amazing deal for the night, $50 will get you a shampoo, cut, facial cleanse and 15 minute mini-massage. Not too shabby!
The one thing that you probably noticed missing from the night is booze, but thankfully a few of our favorite happy hours are on Melrose. Duck into 8oz for their regular or late night happy hour, hit up Froma from 4-7pm for a $5 glass if wine, or stop in at Comme Ca for some discounted wine and $6 specialty cocktails.
