Themes and highlights from the blog this week:
2. As a festival extra, John Birdsall interviewed SF Cart Project's Matt Cohen. Cohen, a former ramen truck owner and hotel manager, has helped many food trucks untangle the knot of regulations that make it so hard for them to make it onto the streets here (last month, Cohen talked specifics with us). And his Off the Grid night markets are bringing San Franciscans in contact with trucks and carts that can't otherwise make it into the city.
