Weekend Plans Made: Lakewood Truck Park Will Open Friday, June 19

Late Thursday, Dan Deagan got the call he'd been eagerly waiting for. A liquor license had been secured and he could open Lakewood Truck Park, which he and partner Justin Costanzo will do at 4 p.m. Friday, June 19.

"Finally, I'm so excited," Deagan says. "This has been five years in the making. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Located at the corner of Detroit and Edwards, the spacious lot is now officially  home to a year-round courtyard coupled with an indoor bar, rotating food trucks and al fresco entertainment. The outdoor venue could not come at a better time for consumers, who desire to be outside as much as possible.

“I think people will be more comfortable at the Truck Park, with it basically being an open-air, mostly outdoor venue, so that could very much benefit us,” he notes. “It’s essentially an 8,000-square-foot patio.”

Deagan says that the food truck selection might be light in the opening days thanks to a new inspection process in Lakewood that truck operators must go through.

Deagan, by the way, is about to celebrate 10 years of success at Deagan’s Kitchen in Lakewood and 7 years at nearby Humble Wine Bar.
