The music will make the atmosphere lively, the tables and chairs will make it comfortable and this time, and Mobile Gourmet co-founder Jill Horn said they'll have have more than 20 trucks in an effort to shorten the lines and increase the variety.
They'll have some of the favorites including: The Shackmobile from Lobster Shack, which serves the most delicious lobster rolls; Sunshine Susan who has a solar powered ice cream parlor, and That's Sweet, owned by a Pleasanton family that sells mini pies, whoopie pies and cupcakes.
All are welcome to come enjoy a large variety of food trucks, beer, wine, margaritas, and live music.

They currently have a weekly lunch at the Hiller Aviation Museum every Wednesday and are planning a number of other public and private food truck events.
