MELBOURNE | Like movies? Like food trucks? Then do we have the event for you.
Returning for two nights on Wednesday the 19th and Thursday the 20th of August is the Coburg Drive-In Food Truck Festival, a seemingly perfect combination to help people survive the last of Melbourne’s winter.
Held at the Coburg Drive-In (yes, they do still exist), you will be joined by food trucks including: Brazilian Bites, Mamma Van, Nem N’ Nem, Greek Street Food, Dos Diablos, Trailer Made, White Guy Cooks Thai & Manny’s Donut Café. We’ve tried a fair few of these food trucks, and are particularly fond of Greek Street Food, White Guy Cooks Thai and Mamma Van.
On the cinema bill is: The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the new film by Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels director Guy Ritchie based on the TV series of the same name and starring none other than Superman himself, Henry Cavill; and Vacation, the reboot/sequel of the classic National Lampoons Chevy Chase-helmed series, starring The Hangover and The Daily Show’s Ed Helms as the grown-up Rusty Griswold. Both are getting solid reviews, but if you need to know more convincing, check out the trailers below.
Both evenings promise to be something special, perhaps in different ways, and are a very good reason to visit Coburg. We suggest you rumble your way down to the ticket booth before they sell out. You can find full details and purchase tickets here.
