Beep beep! Incoming telegram.

If you’re looking for a lowkey evening of funs on Thursday April 18, here’s a plug for the ole google calendar.

The team at Franklin & Mercer – a menswear shop in lower Lawrenceville –  is hosting their monthly installment of ‘Third Thursday’s Trucks.’ The clothing boutique, which is located at 3507 Butler St, picks a food truck to partner up with every third Thursday of the month.

PGH Taco Truck

This month, Franklin & Mercer will feature PGH Taco Truck AND offer up complimentary Iron City beer to attendees. PGH Taco Truck will be parked out front serving up the goods from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday night. Fun Fact: PGH Taco Truck has been voted “Pittsburgh’s Best 6 Years In A Row” alternating between Pittsburgh magazine and Pittsburgh City Paper.

Jowdy Studio

Also happening at this month’s ‘Third Thursday’ is a special trunk show by Jowdy Studio.

Andrew (AJ) Jowdy Collins runs an inspiring ceramics practice, with an emphasis on clay planters and lighting fixtures, out of his studio in Homewood. AJ will be showcasing his wares as part of a pop-up trunk show at the F&M event. He plans to continue selling his ceramics from F&M over the next month.
