My first-ever book arrives on shelves Monday, July 20. It’s called Los Angeles Street Food: A History from Tamaleros to Taco Trucks, and you can buy it on Amazon right friggin’ here. Part history, part guidebook, part call to action, LA Street Food aims to be your all-in-one guide to the messy, delicious belly of Los Angeles dining.

To help bring this baby into the world, I’ll be doing a few media things around town as well:

Saturday, July 18 (3 p.m.): I’m on the The Fork Report radio show. Tune in!
Friday, July 24 (8 p.m.): I’m doing monologues for the improv team Bangarang! at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater on Franklin. Come hear crazy food stories!
Saturday, July 25 (5 p.m.): See me read excerpts at Skylight Books in Los Feliz
Sunday, August 9 (12 p.m.): BOOK LAUNCH at LA County Store! Come party in Silver Lake!
Saturday, August 15 (1 p.m.): I’ll be reading from the book at the LA Public Library as part of their Culinary Historians panel

More to come!
