Re: “Whistle Pig heads in the right direction

We went there yesterday evening - a group of us (4-5) regularly visit local brewpubs. It was my 4th trip, and I really don't think any of the brews show much improvement. Would have liked to try the new menu, but there was only one person serving, and we weren't able to get his attention to order food. Sadly, probably the last time we'll give Whistle Pig a try.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

Let the food trucks park in Acacia Park. They would help activate the park.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

Regulations. Red tape. Bureaucrats and politicians stifling food providers. Fridays - Saturdays - 12 hours. Govt busybody BS! And parking meters belong to the City - not to brick & mortar restaurants - so why do food trucks need to "partner" with them? If food trucks are successful, expect the brick & mortars to put their own food trucks out on the streets. This will be a significant way to "revitalize" downtown. Lots of people don't want to eat at sit-down restaurants. They'd rather grab a quick lunch from a food truck and eat it sitting on a bench or planter provided by the City. Take a lesson from Denver's 16th street mall - close Tejon to vehicles and parking meters and open it to the public and food trucks.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

This is awesome. I'm especially looking forward to the food trucks downtown. Austin has a busy downtown street they close down on Friday/Saturday nights and have tons of people, bars, and food trucks gathering. I could see this pushing Tejon in that direction.
