The 4th Sacramento Mobile Food Festival was today and once again, thousands of people showed up to wait in line for hours to get food from the various trucks. I attended the first one last year, but left when I realized that it would take up to three hours to get anything to eat.
I've tried a few of the local trucks when I've found them and while they are sometimes good, it's not because you get food out of a kitchen with wheels.
However, hipsters seems to absolutely love these things.
Food trucks remind hipsters of their adventures eating road-side snack foods prepared by locals during their back-packing trip in Honduras.
Or maybe they like food trucks just to enforce the feeling of being hip since most food trucks do the whole Twitter thing, so you can only find the food truck if you're "in the know."
Most likely some combination thereof.
