RIP Glenn De Baca #DinDinaGoGo #FoodTrucks

Back in the 2009, when food trucks were still new to LA, and when the food truck lots were just forming, Glenn De Baca helped form the famous Din Din a Go Go with various food truck operators such as LomoArigato, TropShaveIce, and others.

Over the years, Glenn would create food truck locations throughout the LA County area, but focused primarily in the South Bay. He never turned away a new food truck, and usually was the first lot to give a food truck their first real break.

Until recently, he ran the successful lot South Bay Din Din a Go Go (renamed Food Trucks at Narbonne High), which was one of the most popular street food truck event in the Los Angeles County. Not only were they the most popular, they were the ones who started the trend as the first street food truck lot ever.

Sadly, @AtomicEats posted on January 27, 2016, Glenn passed away after battling a long illness.  He will be missed, and he will be remembered as one of the pioneers for promoting the LA Food Trucks.  RIP, Glenn.

Jan 30-31: Arizona, #StreetEatsAZ Festival

EVENT INFO

LOCATION
Salt River Fields at Talking Stick
7555 N. Pima Rd.
Scottsdale, AZ 85258

Map: www.saltriverfields.com/location.aspx

DATE & TIME
Saturday-Sunday, January 30-31, 2016
11am-6pm, each day

TICKETS
General Admission: $12 (children 12 & under: FREE)
VIP: $50
(VIP includes ticket, six beverages, private restrooms, and four $2 food tokens, plus access to VIP Lounge)

HOW’S IT WORK?
Once inside the festival, you can purchase tokens worth $2 each. These will be used in lieu of cash at the bars. At the food trucks, you can use tokens, cash, or credit cards (most trucks take them). Trucks themselves will sell food at prices of their choosing, however, they’re aware that you just shelled out 12 bucks to get in, so they all offer a $2 “sample” option so you can try as many trucks as possible. But if you want a full meal, most trucks will also have those as well.

PARKING: FREE
(A portion of each ticket is designated for parking expenses)

Jan 23: Costa Mesa, Free concert Milo Greene

Milo Greene represents an impressive evolution in many ways. What began as a collection of friends is now a four-year musical partnership about to release their second album. The band began making music together in 2009 and moved to Los Angeles shortly thereafter. As the group made their cinematic debut album, released in 2012, Milo Greene shifted into a fully tangible being, a force created by four distinct songwriters and musicians whose collaboration consistently remains its center.

Last summer, after touring extensively and playing festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Outside Lands in support of Milo Greene, the musicians came home and began writing new music. The band wrote separately, each constructing their own ideas, bringing in varied, individual influences, putting the pieces together as a collective. There was a unified focus on percussion and on creating more up-tempo tracks, specifically ones with rhythmic, dance-inducing grooves.
