Coming soon, a Baltimore vs. Washington, D.C. food truck event

Baltimore and Washington's food-truck armadas will square off at A Taste of Two Cities a blow-out food-truck gathering on Saturday, June 23.

A Taste of Two Cities will gather together 20 food trucks from each city at the Westport Waterfront, the venue for last spring's Cirque du Soleil.

Organizers of the June 23 event are hoping to draw thousands of food truck-fans for the friendly competition, which is scheduled for the same weekend as the Washington Nationals visit to Camden Yards.
