After receiving an avalanche of negative feedback, Assemblymember Bill Monning (D-Carmel) caved and dropped his bill that would have effectively ended food trucks in many cities across California. With that, Sac Bee's Chris Macias tries to figure out what's next.
So does that mean the Sacramento City Council is ready to hold hearings about food trucks? A recent hearing before the city's Law and Legislation committee was cancelled until the fate of AB 1678 was decided.

Food trucks possible to return to Sac State campus - After a long absence, food trucks could be coming back this fall to Sacramento State to give students an alternative to current restaurants on campus. Sean Keister in the State Hornet.
Hot City Pizza - Baseball season is officially in full swing, which means T-ball games on Friday nights for the Hurley household and many other East Sac families. After our first game last week, we took our little sluggers to Hot City Pizza for some amazing pizza featuring their signature wheat crust and pies with names like The Angry Pig and Triple Garlic Happiness. The beer selection (for the parents of course!) is equally as impressive. Kris Caputo Hurley on Sac Foodies.
Owners of LaBou bake up Les Baux bakery - With the continued success of La Bou, Lemon Grass, Star Ginger and their many other properties and projects, Annie Ngo and husband Trong Nguyen have endeavored to open a new restaurant modeled after a French bakery and café. Jessica Scharff in the State Hornet.
Burgers and Brew accommodates diners with special diets - Nestled in the R Street corridor between The Shady Lady Bar and R15 Bar is a little burger joint called Burgers and Brew. The appeal of Burgers and Brew is the rare beer selection, the high-quality burgers and late night hours, which makes it a popular restaurant for college students. Brittany Lambert in the State Hornet.
Chefs with Tats - Duff Goldman, the Food Network’s famed “Ace of Cakes,” has the letters b-a-k-e c-a-k-e tattooed across his knuckles. Hunky Aarón Sanchez of “Chopped” has a ton of tats, including an Aztec god holding fruits and vegetables. But celebrity chefs aren’t the only ones getting inked. Local culinistas are, too. Here’s just a tip of the tattoo iceberg. Cathy Cassinos-Carr in Sac Mag.
