One of the rites of passage in becoming a true Atlantaian is a trip to the Atlanta Food Truck Park.
However, this can hardly be a harshly enforced prerequisite, since this Park only just celebrated its first birthday.
A more strongly enforced rule would definitely be to visit the rainbow umbrella'd King of Pops carts, as they have been a more long-standing tradition.
Both the Food Truck Park and the many King of Pops carts that dot the Atlanta landscape are near to my heart.
Both bring a wheeling change of flavors from visit to visit.
My favorite food truck is Masala Fresh, and I can hardly pick a favorite pop.
There are dozens of flavors I have yet to try.
So, whenever a friend comes down to visit, it is absolutely perfunctory that we stop by the Food Truck Park and sit at the sunlit picnic tables, slurping on some pops.
