ARLNow has the news on an interesting compromise in the perceived battle between brick and mortar restaurants and food trucks (the press release isn’t yet posted on the BID’s website).

Starting with today, the BID will set aside free parking for food trucks at 18th & Crystal Dr (same location as the farmer’s market), but only on Thursdays.  Also, trucks that sign up to participate have to agree to not serve anywhere else in Crystal City at any other time.  Today’s line-up includes: Hot People Food, Red Hook Lobster, Willie’s Po’Boy and Doug the Food Dude.
