DCFTA forces NYC food trucks to cancel event in DC
I’ve been following this bit of drama for a while now, and am kind of surprised at the way the whole thing went down. A local girl (who happens be a friend of mine) was organizing a competition between DC and NYC food trucks here in the District, and the DCFTA not only aggresively coerced her into removing her event promotion from the website Yelp, but also eventually wound up getting the whole thing shut down.
This was a major bummer for me given the support that I used to show the food trucks here in DC, but when added to their other actions lately and continued resistence towards regulation it really makes me regret the monster that we’ve created.
Just wanted to pass the story along to others who may be interested, and more details can be found here:
