After the first L.A. Street Food Fest in February, many hoped the event would come back in the summer, rather than waiting a full year. That wish has come true.

Last night organizers tweet-teased this little tid bit: "Our lips are sealed 'til next week, but take a guess on where our next July 24th event will be." A link led to a photo of organizers Shawna Dawson and Sonja Rasula at the what looks like the Rose Bowl.
