Join Johnson & Wales University and Eric Weiner tomorrow evening for JWU's Fearless Speaker Series, where Weiner will be launching his new food company, FoodTrucksIn. Be sure to bring your appetite, as there will be eight Providence-based food trucks joining in on the festivities.

Fearless brings together students as well as alumni that eat, sleep and breathe entrepreneurship. Speakers will not be “pitching their business,” but will be sharing their passion as well as their war stories so that others may benefit from their experiences. Inside the JWU Providence E-Center, three local movers and shakers will give short talks and do a Q&A session. Speaking at the event will be Audra Grady, changemaker, life coach, and "solopreneur", Stephanie Schecter, graphic artist and branding pro, and Eric Weiner of FoodTrucksIn.

While food truck enthusiasts have to do a bit of detective work on Facebook and Twitter to track down their favorite eats, FoodTrucksIn makes it easy by indexing over 4,000 food trucks across the country. Visit the site,, and you'll find out where your favorites have checked in and are serving food near you.

Head to Fountain Plaza, 8 Abbott Park Place in Providence, tomorrow at 5pm to enjoy the stylings of local favorites like Mijos Tacos, PVD Pudding Pops, and Rocket Fine Street Food. If after the speeches at 6pm you're sitll hungry, never fear! The trucks will all be in the park until 8pm celebrating the launch and enjoying the beautiful summer night.
