The last stop on the A-Train line will host "Friday Night Bites" this weekend. The event marks the return and expansion of late Friday night service of the DCTA train that runs from the Trinity Mills DART station to Denton six days a week.

Food trucks will gather in the Denton Transit Center while music plays until 10 p.m. Friday. You can go check out some tunes and the new Bombay Chopstix truck that features Indo-Chinese cooking; event organizers are hoping you'll stick around after too.

On Friday and Saturday night the trains now run till 11:55 p.m., making exploring Denton's nightlife for Dallasites a little more convenient and safer. (The last train departs at 1:30 a.m. but will only get you to the Old Town Stop.) It's a long ride at just under two hours, but it's still better than getting a DWI.

Here are the participating food trucks...

The Pickled Carrot Gandolfo's Deli The Butcher's Son Crazy Fish Cup-Cakin Rockstar Bakeshop Bombay Chopstixs Three Lions Truck Shitake Swerve Rock N' Roll Tacos

The event is 5 p.m.-10 p.m. this Friday, October 26, from at the DCTA Downtown Transit Center.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
