A long battle between Houston and one of the city's more popular beer gardens has finally ended. In an announcement Wednesday, Truck Yard says it has updated its space to allow for trucks to do business at the site, after getting an OK from the city.
Back in August, the city health department told the food trucks at the EaDo beer garden they couldn't operate there any longer, since Truck Yard had built a canopy that extended above the trucks. According to a city ordinance, food trucks cannot operate in a place with a canopy, as it's considered a structure.
Moreover, the city said Truck Yard was violating an ordinance stating trucks can't be parked within 100 feet of dining areas.
Truck Yard said in October it was hoping to get everything cleaned up within a month; it took a few more, but now the EaDo haunt can have food trucks. Friday brings El Gaujillo and Muiishi Markirritos, Saturday it'll be Twisted Catfish and Coreanos, and Wokker and Rich Boy Po Boys will stop in Sunday.
Also, Truck Yard has opened the Karaoke Container, a private, enclosed room where people can sing their favorite songs to their hearts' content. Reserve by paying $25, plus an hourly minimum drink tab.
