HOUSTON, TEXAS (March 1, 2015) – There’s certainly no shortage of fun in downtown Houston this season as GreenStreet – the mixed-use destination stretching three-city blocks between Main and Caroline – unveils a robust events calendar bursting with fun and excitement! New this season will be an entirely fresh mix of food trucks featured daily onsite, including one of the most coveted trucks rolling into Houston: Cousins Main Lobster. Other fan favorites include the return of a Houston Rockets Viewing Party presented by Bud Light, Friday Flicks on The Lawn complete with free popcorn and prize giveaways, as well as a weekly line-up of live concerts from some of the area’s hottest entertainers.

Catch these and more on The Lawn, GreenStreet’s outdoor entertainment green space located at the corner of Dallas and Fannin, just steps from McCormick & Schmick’s™ outdoor patio.

Lunchtime Lineup

Your lunch hour shouldn’t be an endless cycle of bologna sandwiches and wilted lettuce salads. Grab your friends and head on over to GreenStreet where you’ll get a chance to experience a new food truck offering every day. Food truck veterans will find familiar favorites such as gourmet grilled cheese from Golden Grill, kimchi fries from Coreanos and Korean-fused cheesesteaks from Koagie Hots; but this season, GreenStreet also will be adding a new level of flavor by featuring a fresh batch of new food trucks on the scene. Enjoy oversized lobster rolls from Cousins Main Lobster, Filipino cuisine from Flip ‘N’ Patties, Japanese creations from Muiishi Makirritos, and all things chicken from Sticky’s Chicken. Also new to GreenStreet is Ripe – a vegan truck known for locally sourced ingredients that are both healthy and tasty – as well as some dessert options: Cupcake with a Smile and Happy Baking. Times and dates are subject to change weather pending. Food trucks will be parked next to ForeverXXI at the corner of Main and Dallas.
