AirTalk Event Invite: LA’s Drive to Curb Food Trucks

Tuesday, October 5, 2010, 4:00pm - 8:00pm
The Crawford Family Forum 474 South Raymond Avenue Pasadena, CA 91105 Map and directions

The recent explosion of gourmet food trucks - serving everything from grilled cheese to red-velvet cup cakes - has transformed curbside dining. Obsessed fans track the mobile eateries on Twitter and endure long lines to feast and commune with fellow foodies. But critics say the trucks ignore parking and zoning regulations, steal business from brick and mortar restaurants and draw crowds that leave trash in their wake. LA city officials were set to meet in mid-October 2010 to debate proposals, which could have put an end to the thriving food truck scene in the Miracle Mile district and much of the city. Culinary offerings were available from: @GrlldCheeseTruk, @BorderGrill, @KabobnRoll, @ThePlaceLA and more (regular menu prices apply). To listen to this event, please visit the AIRTALK website.
