It’s a tri-state food-truck massive!

You know how in Smokin’ Aces quirky teams of stylish assassins converged on Lake Tahoe to try to take out Jeremy Piven before he could squeal to the feds? No, you don’t, because no one saw that movie. Anyway, the South Point Gourmet Food Truck Fest is just like that, except with less assassination and more sliders.

Food trucks from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver and Las Vegas will gather at the casino from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 5 to serve you. From a truck.

Local favorites BBQ Boy, Sin City Wings, Haute Chix, Tasty Bunz and, of course, Slidin’ Thru and Fukuburger will represent the 702 among all the out-of-towners taking advantage of South Point Casino’s ample parking.

The festival also includes a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer garden, wine area, Absolut bars, live music and football to expressly distract you from your desire to hijack a food truck and go on a cross-country burger binge.

Bottles. Burgers. Boom!

What this town needs is more hamburger joints. Wait! Before you crumple this page, light it on fire and scream, “Surely you jest, madam!” consider this: Juicy, unique, gourmet burgers crafted by Daniel Boulud Brasserie alum Doug Vega that are stuffed with braised short rib or blue cheese. And what better to pair them with than perfectly sized half-bottles of wine? This is the burger joint, according to Ray Nisi and partners.
