SactoMofo: good food for us, good biz for Sacramento

If you didn’t make to SactoMofo this past Saturday, then you missed out — it was by far the best of the mobile food event thus far. We’re huge proponents of the movement and see food trucks as an integral part of cultivating a unique culture and identity for Sacramento. Yes, we think the city ordinance that restricts food truck parking to no longer than 30 minutes is pretty ridiculous. And we’re not the only ones who know how much the local economy needs a mobile-food-shot-in-the-arm. (Psst, city council, stop postponing this conversation already!)

Bacon? Yes, please.

Chando's Tacos

VolksWaffle makes damn good Belgian waffles

Anyway, we obviously had a great time stuffing our faces. One of the best things about Sacramento is that you’re likely to run into folks you know at these kind of community events. We ran into our friends Ann Martin Rolke of Sacatomato, Kimberly of Poor Girl Eats Well, Jenn of The Hits and her husband, and a writer friend of ours who will be published in the next issue of Under the Gum Tree. See how connected this city is?

Amen, sister! Why can’t those who can fix this see the good this event does?

If they don’t do something about the ordinance, it’s going to look suspiciously like the city council is in bed with food truck competitors, as if there isn’t enough lunch dollars to go around.

And 8th and W? Really? Nobody puts baby under a freeway.

8th & W wasn’t so bad…it’s where the farmers’ market is on Sundays. It was at least better than Fremont Park, more spread out, less crowded, etc.
