"Remember the Taco Truck!"
Moderated by C. Thi Nguyen, Chow Digest Editor at Chowhound.com

Taco trucks are one of the cultural pillars of Los Angeles, but they could soon be a thing of the past. Led by Supervisor Gloria Molina, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors has passed new anti-taco truck regulations. If the trucks don't move every hour, they face $1000 in fines, and/or six months in jail. Our panel of writers, thinkers, and activists discusses the joys of the taco truck, their place in Los Angeles culture, and the politics behind the new regulations. Join Pulitzer Prize winning food writer Jonathan Gold, Barry Glassner, author of The Gospel of Food, Chris Rutherford, co-founder of saveourtacotrucks.org, and Chowhound.com's C. Thi Nguyen, as they discuss the future, and the history, of our taco trucks.
