Once again, the Owl is on the side of the good guys:
The proposed regulations announced this week will require that food trucks be parked only on private property at least 250 feet away from any existing restaurant, which essentially eliminates food trucks from downtown Greenville's Central Business District.
The Owl's Facebook page says: "Food Truck Revolution in our parking lot next Wednesday, March 13! We've invited our friends, Neue and Asada, to come park in our lot and serve (while we're open) as a sign of peaceful protest against the new food truck regulations. We feel they are too restrictive and no one currently involved with the trucks was consulted or asked a single question on the matter."
Given that downtown restaurants tend toward pro-Romney baroque trainwrecks like Soby's, or earnest but dreary farm-to-table bandwagoneers like American Grocery, it's no wonder there's a move to keep interesting food purveyors like Neue Southern far away.
