Truck party

If you've had a hard time tracking down your favorite food truck on Twitter, get set for a prescheduled five-hour window where that vehicle probably won't shift out of park. Saturday's SactoMoFo 6 festival—happening April 27, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. under the freeway at Sixth and X streets—features more than two dozen mobile food vendors from Sacramento and beyond, as well as a beer garden, live music (Urban Fire, Four Barrel, Hero's Last Mission) and booths highlighting local businesses (Grub Groupie; Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services; 98 Rock, 98.5 FM KRXQ). I'm particularly excited to become acquainted with Stockton-based food trucks Green Papaya (Thai and Lao street food) and The Spicy Grill (Afghani, Pakistani and Indian fusion). Entry into the event is free, but parking costs $3 (though it's free with the donation of a nonperishable food donation to Sacramento Food Bank). For more information, visit
