My first bubble mailer

curbsideInside my very first bubble mailer were two Zagat guides, one for Los Angeles and one for San Francisco. The noteworthy trend is that food trucks and pop-up eateries continue to flourish out there, with a few ranking very well. In San Francisco, a fleet of mobile taco trucks named El Toyanese is the new top-ranked "best buy for the buck."

All of this is just a good excuse for me to re-post a link to the story Jill Rosen did a few weeks back about the nascent Baltimore food truck scene. I am sorry I missed that story but was sorrier to have found it when I thought I had a great idea for my own story. hanks, Jill!

I hit up one of the trucks on Broadway a few months back -- tongue tacos and some amazing gorditas. 1/2 the price of the restaurants and better quality food.

Favorite truck in the states:

Oh and, WE LOVE YOU RICHARD! (just added this blog to my link list).

the feeling is mutual!

Welcome! When are the techies (if there still are any) going to give you your byline and clean up the "about this blog" box? Or is that done in Chicago too?

Thanks, that box should be all up to date by tomorrow. For the time being, it's kind of nice to share the space with Elizabeth and Laura.
