Monday night tacos support Pomona K-9s

And we thought Tuesday was taco night.

The Pomona Eagles Auxiliary hosts Monday night taco sales from 5:30 to 7:15 p.m. every Monday except holidays.

Cost is $1 for either beef or chicken tacos.

In addition to tacos, the group also sells a variety of other food items including tostadas, taco salad and burritos.

Proceeds go to the Pomona Police Department’s K-9 unit and other charities.

The Pomona Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 2215 is at 954 W. Mission Blvd., Pomona.

Good lineup for tonight’s Food Truck Thursdays at Fairplex

Your knowledge of fair food could win you a vintage T-shirt

It’s still a couple of months away, but our friends over at Fairplex are already thinking about this year’s Los Angeles County Fair.

Well, about the food, at least.

They are pondering what everyone’s favorite fair food is, and they’ve also got a contest regarding one of Chicken Charlie’s (in)famous concoctions.

Guess correctly and you could win a “vintage” fair T-shirt.

I know the answer, but if I told you, that would be cheating.

Click here to share your favorite fair food and enter the contest.

Good luck!

Tonight’s scheduled trucks are:

Also, Calbi BBQ has tweeted that they will be there. Don’t know if that’s a misfire, but would be a great addition.

This week’s lineup for Food Truck Thursdays at Fairplex revealed

60657-FTTFairplex-thumb-250x225-60656.pngI was lucky enough to finally catch Food Truck Thursdays at Fairplex last week and had a trio of amazingly delicious tacos (pork sisig, pork tocino and chicken adobo) from the White Rabbit Truck and picked up some cupcakes from the My Delight Truck for dessert (their snickerdoodle cupcake is out of this world).

It’s a great event, with food trucks, fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade candies and kettle corn and beer and margaritas!

This week, Fairplex has a whole new batch of trucks to try.

Here’s who’s scheduled to be there this week:

The trucks will be parked from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday (June 28) in the lower administration parking lot in front of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum.
