The Member Meeting is this Sunday, JUNE 4th at 10am, at 1401 Santa Monica Blvd in Santa Monica.
Santa Monica has been cracking down on the 30 minute rule. Officer Rosenberg, is threatening to withhold permits if people violate the 30 minute law. If you have been affected by this, email me.
BETSY BUTLER: The election is upon us. Please tweet “On June 8th, vote for friend of the food trucks, Betsy Butler for the 53rd Assembly District seat. http://tinyurl.com/bbutler” OR- “Elect Betsy Butler (53rd district- http://twitpic.com/1pvvj7), friend of the food trucks on June 8th! http://tinyurl.com/bbutler”
We really need a representative in the State Assembly. This will protect our industry from further regulation, and may help us roll back some of the unfair regulations that currently exist.
Duarte Food Fair: I will have the list of trucks that the organizer picked by tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Long Beach Street Food Fest: I think I’ve worked out a very good deal for us for this fair. There will be an upfront cost, but we will be reimbursed from the entrance fee proceeds. As soon as we have it all worked out, I’ll give you specifics.
LA TIMES Food and Wine fest (September 5th): This is going to be a big festival on the Paramount pictures lot. Three bands (They’re trying to get the Roots, The Bravery and Franz Ferdinand) and 25-30 trucks. I negotiated a very favorable cost of entry…. ZERO DOLLARS.
