Let The Battle Of The Food Truck All-Stars Begin!

1483721641597While the overwhelmingly popular Downtown Huntsville Street Food Gathering brand has been retired for 2017, Downtown Huntsville is excited to welcome a new and exciting food-centric event in its place: The Battle of the Food Truck All-Stars!

Curious how it will work?  Here’s what we know:

In just a few days, on February 9th at 6pm, the owners of 23 food trucks will gather at Yellowhammer Brewing and have 5 minutes each to present on their menu, branding, customer service and design to a panel of expert judges.

Judges for the event will include: Chefs Leonardo Maurelli III (Executive Chef of the Hotel at Auburn University) and James Boyce (Boyce Restaurant Concepts) and marketing gurus Trent Willis (Founder & CEO of Red Brick Strategies) and Lisa van der Reijden (Principal, VDR Designs).

After deliberating, the judges will select 10 food trucks to move on to the final round, and then YOU THE PEOPLE will vote for 2 more via an online poll that will open in February!

The final 12 Food Truck All-Stars will then compete twice a month from May – October at various times and locations around Downtown Huntsville to see who will be named Champion!

Here’s the current list of food trucks that will be competing for one of the final 12 spots:

Honest Coffee Roasters & Greasy Hands Barbershop to join The Garage At Clinton Row!

Just in case you missed the announcement at the Grand Opening Celebration for The Garage At Clinton Row on Nov 3rd, we are thrilled to announce that Honest Coffee Roasters (based out of Franklin, TN) and Greasy Hands Barbershop (based out of Florence, AL) will be joining the Downtown Huntsville family as a part of The Garage At Clinton Row very soon!

Here’s more about each company:


Greasy Hands Barbershop

Greasy Hands is an appointment-only barbershop specializing in precision men’s haircuts, beard trims & hot towel, straight to razor shaves. Built on the idea that hard work pays off, they are proud to be a shop for the everyman.

Every haircut is finished with a hot lather neck shave, steam towel & cold aftershave. The way it should be. Our straight razor shave preparation is second to none, utilizing all-natural creams, oils & lathers to help your skin be the best it can be. We wear beards; we know beards. Nobody shapes beards as well as we do. Period.

Honest Coffee Roasters

It all started in the late 1800s, with a man named James and a Grocery named Green’s.

Franklin, Tennessee wasn’t exactly Coffee Town, USA. Quite the contrary. Presidents were traveling to Nashville to drink coffee at the heralded Maxwell House Hotel, while Franklin had nothing but moonshine and marshmallow.

So, James saddled his horse, hitched his buggy (in reverse order of course), and took the 3-day journey up to Nashville in search of coffee.

And coffee he found! But not just coffee. James brought back flour, sugar, rice, and other commodities to stock his humble general store.

Over 100 years later, James’ great-great-grandson has the same dream to bring high quality, ethically sourced, & freshly roasted coffee to Williamson County.

Now this dream is being realized in the form of Honest Coffee Roasters!

Coffee has the ability to influence culture unlike anything else. It drives business, fosters community, and brings people from far and wide to experience something that, when done well, will cause anyone to pause and appreciate life a little more.

Poetic and perfect. These 2 words say a lot. So does our coffee. Sometimes, less is more. Less hands to pass between. Less chances to mess up what God created. Less time in the roaster. Less days before consumption. We like less.

So did Abe. Less oppression. Less division. More equality. More unity.

Abe said to “plant your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” So we do. We don’t source from farmers who can’t support their families. We never will. We can’t always travel to the farms, but we talk face-to-face with the people who do. Integrity matters. That’s why we call ourselves Honest.
