Save the Food Trucks is joining forces with Food Truck Tweet-up on October 9, 2010 at the Long Beach Street Food Festival. There will be a table setup for anyone that is interested in more information on the challenges and successes of the Gourmet Food Truck phenomenon. The meet-up will also be a great place for Twitter and Facebook fans to meet their tweeps face-to-face.

During the event there will be guest Gourmet Food Truck owner/operators on hand to answer questions, take pictures and meet their loyal fans. The list of owners and times will be published prior to the event.  We will make sure to share that list as soon as we see it.

Save The Food Trucks was launched to publicize the great things Gourmet Food Trucks do for the community, charities and redevelopment of downtown locations in cities across the country. Its also a place to call out the challenges that face food trucks from politicians, developers and private land owners.  When you have a chance I strongly recommend you check out their site and see some of the letters people have submitted.  There is a lot of good stuff going on.

Food Truck Tweet-up is simply a way for people with a love of Gourmet Food Trucks to get together and put a face to a tweet. The overall purpose is to help build a solid family oriented community of like minded Gourmet Food Trucks lovers.  As you would expect we are big fans of Food Truck Tweet-up.  It has been fun to meet people that enjoy the trucks as much as we do.

This will not only be a great time to chat with the truck owners but Saturday Night Foodies will be there as well.  We hope you come tweet with us and the rest of the Food Truck Tweet-up crew.
