Foodies! SactoMoFo (the Sacramento Mobile Food organization) has rounded up 8 Bay Area and over a dozen local food trucks, carts and other vendors (including San Francisco's JapaCurry, Hapa SF, Chairman Bao, An The Go, El Porteno, Seoul on Wheels and Bacon Bacon trucks, and many of your local favorites and lots of new local vendors - including a big Hmong grill, Leila's Lumpia, It's Corn Cake, tacos, burgers, sandwiches, banh mi and more) for SactoMoFo 3, to be held Saturday, December 3, 11 am - 6 pm rain or shine at the Downtown weekend Farmer’s Market location (8th & W Streets, under the freeway). Stop by for lunch and stay for dinner! No tickets, no fees, just lots of great food and drink!
Please note the SactoMoFo HoHoHoliday Brewfest at Power Balance Pavilion has been postponed until later in 2012. Maloof Sports & Entertainment, CBS Radio and SactoMoFo plan to hold a huge outdoor event, including beer tasting from terrific microbreweries all over California and other extras. Those who bought tickets can get a refund at the purchase location. You won’t need a ticket for the December 3 event; admission is 100% free: just dress warm, bring small bills and a big appetite and get your snack on!
The December 3 event is a winter food drive for the Sacramento Food Bank and the U.S. Marines Reserve's Toys for Tots, so please bring canned or packaged dry goods and new unwrapped toys to donate. Santa will also be available for photos with both little and big kids for a small donation to a local children's Christmas charity. See you under the freeway!
The LIMTV (linear induction motor test vehicle) is tested at the Department of Transportation's high speed ground test center near Pueblo, Colorado, in March of 1973. The experimental vehicle is designed to operate at speeds up to 250 miles per hour, using electro-magnetic forces for noiseless propulsion. (Bruce McAllister/NARA)
Cars were jammed even more than usual into every spare space at a downtown commercial parking lot during a bus strike in Washington, D.C., in May 1974. Some 250,000 people were forced to find alternate forms of transportation. Monumental traffic jams resulted as drivers learned there were more cars than legal places to park. (Jim Pickerell/NARA)
