"Food Truck Village" in SM

Well, it looks like the old vacant lot on 14th and SM Blvd. is going to turn, at least temporarily, into a dedicated "food truck village":

A good idea in theory, we'll see if it lasts. I'm planning on checking it out Tuesday.

            Not all the trucks will be there every day. It's more a dedicated, we-won't-chase-you-out location, at least for now. Check individual truck Twitter feeds for details.

              Whoever is organizing this should post schedules of which trucks will be there on a given day. It makes no sense to have to search through many individual twitter feeds for this info. There should be a centralized website. I mean, they have to know who will be there each day if to avoid overscheduling the lot.

                Check out this website for the Event Calendar which shows the truck bookings for each day:


          2. I just heard a news report on radio 1070 on this food truck food court at Santa Monica and 14th. The newscaster reported that there are a lot of hungry customers in the area!
            What fun!!!
