Calling all food trucks
This piece started as a call to Los Angeles food trucks to stop by the L.A. Ampshow the weekend of 10/1 - 10/2. Since I have some of my own favorite food trucks I thought I'd turn this piece into an ongoing post and list some of my personal favorite trucks.
This weekend is the 7th Annual Los Angeles Ampshow. It has been held in the same location since the first show seven years ago.
There are not a lot of options for food other than the hotel. The food there is nice but after many years folks are looking for a few more options.
I am posting this blog so I can send the link to some of my food truck favorite folks in the hope they will come to the show.
Over a thousand folks attend the show so there is plenty of potential customer activity.
I have no idea what the legal aspects of serving the show folks might be but this is in Van Nuys and if some folks arrive early there is parking on the street right in front of the hotel on Valjean Ave.
Many of my friends know how I love some of the food trucks in Los Angeles and hopefully this year at the ampshow there may be some new food options.

Since I created this post and the show is over I think I will keep the post alive by listing the links of some of my own personal favorite food trucks. I will add to the list over time.
For food truck owner / operators - feel free to follow me on twitter or leave a comment here if you would like me to find you and perhaps consider adding you to this list.
One great resource to find where trucks are at a given time or where they will be in the future is http://www.foodtrucksmap.com/la/ Many times I will post the Truxmap link as it gives a quick glance at a given truck schedule, their facebook or twitter links and their own website link.
