If you like the ponies and you've long been looking for a way to combine your secret gambling habit with your love for food trucks, you've hit the proverbial jackpot. The Santa Anita Food Truck Festival is tomorrow, Saturday, January 29th, from 11:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
There will be about 20 food trucks, including (as of today): Border Grill, Grilled Cheese, South Philly Experience, Baby's Badass Burgers, Canters, Dosa, Brian's Comfort Truck, Dogtown Dogs, Knockout Tacos,
Yatta, Dante Fried Chicken, No Reservations, Don Chow Tacos, The Sweets Truck, Chunkn' Chips, Barbies Q, Lobsta Truck, Ragin Cajun, Fresh Fries LA, Lardon, Tapa Boy LA, Crepe'N Around, and NaanStop, which Grub Street says is making its debut.
There will also be a Wine Tent (cross-addiction being very chic these days), a Smile Lounge Photo Booth, and a special performance by The Spazmatics. Lucky you. Entrance to the event is $12, which does not include the price of food. Go bet on something, I guess. Or maybe make sure you eat first and then go lose the rest on the horses. Or not. We're told that a horse called Banana Cream Pie won the last race yesterday.
As an incentive to purchase the $12.00 ticket online, all tickets reserved by midnight tonight will include free parking.
