City of San Diego Approves First Weekly Food Truck Gatherings in Downtown San Diego

San Diego, CA – April 10th, 2013 – Downtown San Diego is now welcoming gourmet food trucks each week on Wednesdays for lunch and Thursdays for dinner. A rotation of six to seven different food trucks will be serving on Wednesdays from 11am to 2pm on West B St between India St & Columbia St and on Thursdays from 5:30pm to 9pm on J St between 3rd Ave & 4th Ave.  
Both events are approved by the City of San Diego’s Special Events Department and are scheduled to run on a weekly basis through the end of the year. Although there have some complaints from nearby businesses, over 500 residents from the community have showed their support and signed a petition to keep these weekly food truck gatherings going.
