Glitch Durham

Four of your favorite Durham food trucks are banding together to give you an evening of atypical food truck cuisine. Each truck will put a GLITCH in their daily routine to prepare 2 courses, both of which are unique to their usual food truck menus. Dining from the stage of The Carolina Theater, guests will experience a unique view of a Durham institution generally reserved for musicians and other performers.  Come join American Meltdown, Chirba Chirba, Porchetta & Sympathy for the Deli
