Lunch stop in San Francisco

We noticed that the lunch truck food fad is going strong in San Francisco.  We also noticed that their sign reminded us of our favorite German Country and Western band.

This trailer was on a tour of the USA for a beer company.  We’ll try to give them a better plug in a future column that will be posted in the usual places.
