Angel City launches a food truck party and art installation, leading up to an official “ribbon-cutting” on the Downtown brewery next month.
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — By now, Los Angeles is well known for its abundance of food trucks and continually growing craft beer scene — two things that Angel City Brewery have begun combining in a monthly food truck bonanza they’re hosting in their back parking lot.
“With a wide open industrial style space — in a working brewery — there is plenty of room for patrons to bring in their tacos, bahn mi, empanadas, gyros, sliders and ice cream sandwiches…and actually enjoy a beer with it all,” says a statement from the brewery.
The event, dubbed Food Truck Haven, takes place the last Saturday of every month and goes from noon to midnight (when the brewery closes). The initial event took place March 30 and included more than 10 different trucks from the White Rabbit Filipino Truck to Gobbles and Oinks, Grilled Cheese Truck and Coolhaus.
Angel City Brewery soft-opened in February with limited hours and select beers, and has slowly been adding special events and brew types to their offerings. As of now, the Arts District brewhouse has six beers on tap: Eureka! Wit, Angeleno IPA, Vanilla Porter, Berliner Weisse, Amber and an un-named Pilsner.
In addition to the monthly food truck party, Angel City will be hosting an art installation called In Your Face – How Artists Transformed LA’s Urban Landscape, which launches April 11 and will be featured through the end of June.
The brewery describes the exhibit as: “Artwork, photos and ephemera documenting the anti-establishment art scene that emerged in the eighties in downtown Los Angeles and the legacy it left on the walls of the city. A visual tribute to the Atomic Cafe, the Art Dock and the faces and walls of the Arts District.”
These special events will lead up to the brewery’s official opening on May 4, “a ribbon-cutting of sorts” that will be sandwiched within an arts and music festival. The line-up of bands for the event have not yet been released.
RENO, Nev.- Reno Food Truck Fridays are back for the 2013 season. Despite a chill in the air on Friday evening, hundreds turned out to the downtown Citicenter to take advantage of gourmet food and live music. The event is designed to support local businesses.
“We do this to promote the local food truck culture and show off all the culinary talents of all these small business owners,” Haley Wood of GourMelt Grilled Cheese Truck said. “We love to see all these people down here, it’s so exciting.”
A lot of the vendors are returning from last year; Great Basin Brewery will be serving up their signature brews all summer long.
“It’s so much fun down here,” Doug Booth of Great Basin said. “The food is great and we enjoy sharing excellent beer with everyone so it’s a good time.”
This year there’s a new addition to the truck lineup: The Biggest Little Fashion Truck will be showing off designer clothes and accessories during the festival.
“This is pretty rad, it’s my first time at this venue and the music is incredible,” Biggest Little Fashion Truck Owner Vincent Lucido said. “The food is great I mean, gourmet food trucks, how can you beat that? Now we have fashion here too so while you’re waiting for your food you can get your fashion on!”
You can catch Food Truck Fridays the first and third Friday of the month through October from 5-9 p.m. at the Citicenter in downtown Reno.
In recent years, it has become increasingly obvious that Wine Country can also be Beer Country.
With the rise of Northern California “craft” brewers, producing their own custom brews on a smaller scale than the mass beer producers with major brand names, a large following has developed.
“Craft beer has grown exponentially, and continues to grow,” said Jim Jacobs, marketing director for the Lagunitas Brewing Company in Petaluma.
And as the fan base swelled, beer festivals naturally bubbled up, too. There are two in Sonoma County this weekend.
One of the region’s pioneer craft beer events, the 17th annual Battle of the Brews featuring nearly 40 breweries, will be held Saturday (April 6) at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa.
And the Sonoma Community Center’s third annual Beervana festival, announcing the winners of its annual amateur brewing competition, happens today (April 5) at the Sonoma Veterans Memorial Building in the city of Sonoma. The annual Sonoma County Beerfest returns June 1 to Santa Rosa’s Wells Fargo Center for the Arts.
“There are so many beer fests, it’s unbelievable,” Jacobs said. “There are hundreds now. On a summer weekend, you could have 16 beer festivals going on in Northern California.”
Craft beer owes much of its success to the public’s growing support for locally made food and drink, and draws much of its audience from the under-30 crowd, Jacobs said.
“The younger folks who are turning 21 are moving to craft beer more than their parents. They’re skipping the domestic beers — Bud, Coors, Miller and all the rest,” he explained.
But it’s worth noting that Miller and Coors also will be among the beers poured at the Battle of the Brews, which historically has sold out as many as 2,500 tickets in advance.
The event added two new features last year — the Craft Cup juried beer competition and the ’Wich Hunt sandwich contest — to reach beyond the typically younger craft beer audience to the local food-and-drink fans who have made many wine festivals successful.
“Historically the crowd for the Battle of the Brews was younger, but that’s changing. Now we see fathers and sons coming,” said Dusty Destruel, president of the Active 20-30 Club No. 50 in Santa Rosa, the event’s sponsor.

LA Weekend Planner: Mangalitsa Pig at Rivabella, Food Truck Haven, More
Pigs and patios at RivaBella
See what all the fuss is about with the Mangalitsa pigs, a special breed known for super marbled and intensely flavored meat, at RivaBella tonight (March 28). Chef Gino Angelini and crew got their hands on a whole pig from New Jersey’s Mosefund Farm, who specially raises the pigs, and will have several dishes, including roast loin with black truffles ($100) and a tasting plate with guanciale-wrapped shrimp, lardo with sea urchin and pancetta with olives and roasted peppers. Dinner starts at 5:30 PM; the pig is available while supplies last (9201 Sunset Blvd.; 310-278-2060).
Eat Drink This
Starting this Saturday, Angel City Brewery becomes a Food Truck Haven in the Arts District downtown. The brewery is still only open for beers Thursday through Saturday (full hours coming in May), but this weekend you can nibble on Filipino eats from White Rabbit to sandwiches at the Grilled Cheese Truck and ice cream at Coolhaus while sipping Angel City’s Eureka! Wit, Angeleno IPA, Vanilla Porter, Berliner Weisse and pilsner. More than a dozen different trucks park from noon to midnight every third Saturday of the month (216 S. Alameda St.; 213-622-1261).
Outdoor movie season begins…now. Tuck back onto that great patio at Wood Vine in Hollywood every Sunday night where classic flicks are shown on the wall with sound. Meanwhile, can snack on charcuterie, fresh salads, chicken and waffles, burgers and fries, and sip new spring cocktails. This weekend it’s Chinatown, with classic noir starting in April (The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Notorious and The Third Man). Movies start at 7 PM (6280 Hollywood Blvd.; 323-334-3360).
Reporter- Jacksonville Business Journal
The Happy Grilled Cheese, one of Jacksonville’s newest food trucks, has a permanent weekday spot Downtown beginning today.
Anthony Hashem, who started The Happy Grilled Cheese in February, is now leasing two parking spaces at 218 Broad St., at the corner of Broad and W. Monroe streets next to the new Duval County Courthouse.
Hashem is the third food truck owner to have a more permanent Downtown location. On the Fly Sandwiches Stuff has been parked about one block away since July 2012 and La Petite Cheri Cupcakery joined in November 2012 at 655 W. Adams St., at the corner of Jefferson and Adams streets.
To see a sample of the menu options at The Happy Grilled Cheese, check on the food truck’s website.

It was a dark and stormy February afternoon in Hampden. The smells of french fries and chicken curry filled the air. That’s when I encountered a gypsy queen in a castle with iced gems.
It was my third visit to The Gathering: Baltimore’s Traveling Festival at the Castle on Keswick and 34th Street. The pop-up food festival began in the summer of 2011 and has continued to become a favorite of foodies living in Baltimore.
On this particular weekend afternoon, Gypsy Queen, Darua Food Truck, Cruisin Cafe, IcedGems, Sultan, GrrChe Gourmet Grilled Cheese, SouperFreak, and Busia’s Kitchen were on hand to feed the crowd. They served everything from Brazilian stew feijoada at Darua to Polish dumplings at Busia’s Kitchen.
The number of food trucks varies as does the locale. The next one will be held March 22 in Hampden and at Locust Point’s McHenry Row March 29. Stratford University in Little Italy, Harbor East and Reservoir Hill have also hosted the Gathering. Local bands such as Greasy Hands, Brooks Long The Mad Dog No Good and Photo Radio have played live music.
Mobile canteens are nothing new in American history; its origins date back to the late 17th century with the idea of horse-drawn food wagons. The latest incarnation, the food truck phenomenon, was borne during the recession in cities throughout the U.S. as diners looked for cheap eats and entrepreneurial chefs looked for cheaper alternatives to opening a new full-service restaurant. The food truck scene hit a snag a couple of years ago and the trucks were almost forced to leave downtown until the city designated food truck zones.
But it seems the phenomenon is here to stay.
On any given weekday food trucks can be found in dense areas of Baltimore City, including downtown, near Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland and other locales. (For a complete list of all the food truck locations in Baltimore, check out Charm City Food Trucks.)
Events like the Gathering help Busia’s Kitchen Owner Pat Dembeck find new fans of her cabbage rolls and pierogies. “It gets you in front of people you ordinarily don’t serve during the work week and occasionally gets your truck private bookings.”
While chatting with a few people on the patio, the consensus was loud and clear: Gypsy Queen was definitely the truck to visit. Naturally, the line was longest for the food truck declared the best in Charm City by both the Baltimore City Paper and Baltimore magazine last year.
Many people were walking away from the truck with a cone-shaped item wrapped in aluminum foil. Once I finally reached the window I asked for what I’d affectionately named “the cone of unknown.” It turned out to be a large waffle cone with old bay fries stuffed to the brim, topped with a crab cake smothered in a sweet and spicy aioli sauce — their famous Crab Cone.
Next, I made my way over to Darua to sample their Brazilian street food. I talked with Marcelo Salles, partner and chef at Darua food truck.
“Feijoada is the national dish of Brazil,” he said. “It’s a slow-cooked black bean stew with five different kinds of pork served with collard greens and rice.”
I opted instead for the chicken croquette, which was fried to perfection on the outside, with flavorful, tender meat on the inside.
I walked by the Iced Gems cupcake truck and spotted Paul DiMeo from “Extreme Makeover” fame chatting with fans while filming a new TV series titled “Second Act.” Scheduled to air in April on RLTV, “Second Act” is about what people can do once they retire from their day jobs. Hmmm…start a food truck perhaps?
Sadly, I didn’t get a chance to taste any of the 15 flavored cupcakes that IcedGems had to offer because the owners sold out of their 1,000-cupcake supply.
I made my final stop at GrrChe for a BCT — bacon, cheddar, and tomato — sandwich and I also sampled the shrimp basket from Cruisin’ Café.
On my way to the drink station I spoke with first-time Gathering attendee Travis Crawford, who raved about the spiked hot chocolate. Would he return?
“Yes, when the weather breaks. Hopefully there will be a wider selection of food trucks.”

Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe is adding another grilled cheese truck to its fleet. Alas, it comes at the expense of Ruthie’s Cheesesteaks. The second grilled cheese truck will be tagged “Ruthies Too”. The Ruthies folks told us that they were turning down too many private party opportunities, so they had to make the change.
Several food trucks, including Lucky Ducky Dogs, Cup Cakin’ Machine, and Simply Dosa will be participating at Mayor Rawlings’ Rally Against Domestic Violence on Saturday late morning at City Hall. Go. Support.
Monday nights have a new event in North Dallas at the intersection of Coit Rd. and George Bush Tollway. This week’s food trucks include Rock and Roll Tacos, Easy Slider, the Mobile Stand, and Yellow Belly.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Ordinarily, food trucks roll through
the city, parking at places convenient for foot traffic. This afternoon,
thousands of people returned the favor, seeking out the food trucks assembled
in the parking lot of the Martin Biscuit Building.
Birmingham’s food trucks and push carts gathered at the
Second Avenue South lot from noon to 5 p.m. for the inaugural Street Food
Paget Pizitz, co-owner of the Melt grilled cheese truck,
estimated that by the event’s 5 p.m. end, more than 5,000 people would have walked
through the gates.
“With the weather, volunteers, food trucks that came out,
the crowd, everything has exceeded expectations,” Pizitz said. “It’s been the
best food truck event in Birmingham so far.”
From the front of each truck, lines topping 100 people
stretched the length of the parking lot, as patrons waited to be served Southern
favorites from Spoonfed Grill and Shindigs Catering, tacos from Cantina on
Wheels, and much more.
Fresh Off the Bun, Slice, Off the Hook, Dreamcakes Bakery, Greg’s Hot Dogs,
Repicci’s Real Italian Ice and Melt were also in attendance.
Jorge Castro, who co-owns the Cantina restaurant in Lakeview
and the Cantina on Wheels food truck, said
they had prepared for about 4,000 people, but he expected more by the day’s

seven allotted tokens to exchange for food and drinks.
Elizabeth and John Knight, in
town from Columbus, Ga., had tried food from five trucks by 3:30 p.m. and still
had four tokens remaining.
“We haven’t had anything that
wasn’t absolutely delicious,” Elizabeth said. “I wish Columbus had something
Perry Riddle, who lives in
Birmingham, had tried wings and pizza from Slice and tacos from the Cantina
food truck. Today was his first experience with most of Birmingham’s food
trucks, and he was surprised to see the array of offerings.
“This will definitely make me
go out and find where these trucks are parked so I can eat there again,” he
said. “As a teacher, they’re especially good in the summer to get a quick
