Save Our Sauça

There’s some kind of assault on our beloved beacons of lunch.  Special interests, when they’re not your own, are the worst.

If I can’t get Sauça, I want it to be because I’m late to the truck or because they sold everything for the day.  Not because some wanksta ass, anchored-to-the-ground, brick and mortar establishment feels threatened by heaven on wheels.  I’m not sorry your menu is redundant and your overhead is through the roof.  That’s why it’s called overhead.

Between the choices at @WhereSauça, @Fojol Bros.,@SweetGreen, and the other rolling food entrepreneurs, you can eat around the world and back before dessert from @CurbsideCupcake.

These options are not only enjoyable, but they also represent a positive shift in business.  They’re creative, entrepreneurial, and increasingly mobile — three trends that reflect the changing marketplace for all of modern business.  Why would anyone discourage this, aside from protect ya neck self-interest?

It’s fear and loathing in the District of Columbia.  And I’m not having it, unless ‘it’ is lunch that comes on wheels.

I already copied/pasted and sent the text (below) to Helder.Gil@dc.gov and you should too.

Subject: I Support Title 24 Chapter 5

Dear City Council,

I am writing to support the current proposed DCRA regulation Title 24 Chapter 5 that will allow mobile vendors to stay in DC and continue offering more choices and value to consumers.

Please do not allow the introduction of any discriminatory language into these regulations that would limit mobile vendors or food trucks.

Please pass the regulations as written and protect the diverse, growing and small business vending options in the city.

Thank you,

[YOUR NAME]

  1. Love this. Though working in Rockville ruins my life in many ways, the worst is the fact that I may never know the glory of a food truck lunch. Viva la sauça!

  2. Hey sis, can you collect some signatures right here on Benign Humor? And simply send your Congressperson a link to this page? I’m sure your fans would be happy to show their support here too.
