First Ever Chicago Food Truck Day and Free Stuff!

There's National Deep Dish Pizza Day and now there's Chicago Food Truck Day. Yes, today, starting at lunch, Chicago food trucks will be rolling around and handing out free treats to the first 19 people who visit the truck in an effort to rally support for the July 19th hearing at City Hall that will determine whether Chicago food trucks can finally join the rest of the normal world and cook on board. Beyond the somewhat limited rules of the Rahm's proposal to the existing ordinance ($1,000 - $2,000 fines and GPS surveillance - did someone say Big Brother?), this is a big advancement in the back and forth battle between the city and food truck owners. The day ends at Fischman's Liquors at 4780 N Milwaukee Ave. with live music and of course, food trucks, from 5:30-9:00.

Follow @foodtrucksinchi and @chifoodtruckz for a update on where the food trucks will be via Twitter or visit Chicago Food Truck Finder for a complete map at where the trucks will be at any given time. If you have a certain truck you want to follow, check out this list.

I mean, really, you didn't want to eat that pathetic ham sandwich anyway. . .

A Historical Glimpse into the Italian Beef Sandwich

By Jeanne Newman

Philly has its Cheesesteak, Miami has the Cubano, and even Iowa has the Loose Meat Sandwich. Just about every American city boasts its own iconic sandwich, but there may not be one shrouded in such historical mystery and worthy of...
