I'm really excited! Are any other Hounds going?
45Bucks? Hmmmm.....I dunno. Each truck is just going to be "featuring" one or two items in sample sizes, is that correct? Hmmm....I dunno. Includes parking and soft drinks and everything though, right? Hmmm....I dunno.....105 degrees in the shade is kinda helping me decide , however.
I'm going. Their first shot at this a few months ago was an organizing disaster of epic proportions, taking 2 hours to get food from most trucks. At the time, I said I'd never go to one of their events again, but it seems like they really took the complaints and suggestions to heart and organized an event that seems much more likely to be successful. Fingers crossed for a good time, good food, and short lines!

They are already sold out (They sold out of GA yesterday and I think might have a few Vip left) Anyway, here's a copy and paste from another post of mine... PERSONALLY, I recommend...
Antojitos Carmen - The Fried Quesdillas, especially with squashblossom or Huitlacoche
Antojitos La Abuelita - Clayuda, the best in L.A.!
Dogzilla Hot Dogs - Yakisoba Dog!
Mariscos El Tetos - Caracol!
Mo-Chica - Causa or Ceviche
Monsieur Egg - Crab Cakes
Starry Kitchen - Crispy Tofu Balls
CoolHaus - any of their ice cream sandwiches!
Natura Bar - Rompope Raspado!
Scoops Westside - Any of their flavors
Everything else is just up to your tastes. IME of these things, the grilled cheese truck was the most popular, but I find their offerings meh. On the other hand almost equally popular fry smith always hits it. Also, keep in mind that there are now several food truck lots that you can always hit these trucks so I would go for those TRULY offering something unique, otherwise, you just have to keep up with the schedules of the lots at the link below...
