Lunchtime treats

University City’s 30th Street Station isn’t just a place to hop off or on a train at the beginning or end of a workday. On the plaza outside the station, The Porch, it’s also a place to take in some midday live music, chow down on offerings from food trucks, and bask in the spring sunshine.

On Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., food trucks parked at The Porch include Say Cheese and Braz-BQ (Mondays); Farm Truck and Sum Pig (Tuesdays); Taco Mondo and Whirly Pig (Wednesdays); SpOt Burger, Mac Mart (on April 23) and Phoebe’s BBQ (Thursdays); and Pitruco Pizza and Mucho Bueno (Fridays).

Accordion player Dan Nosheny entertains lunchtime visitors on Tuesdays from noon to 1 p.m., while acoustic guitarist and vocalist David Falcone performs on Wednesdays from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. On Friday, April 17, from noon to 1 p.m., DJ Shawn Ryan will spin funk, soul, and reggae, and on April 24, the South Pacific Island Dancers provide Luau and Polynesian entertainment, also from noon to 1 p.m.
