Tuesday's gubernatorial debate may be canceled, but that doesn't mean sparks will be flying during a different event. 89.3 FM KPCC will be hosting a their own debate about food trucks and L.A.'s driver to curb them. On one side of the table there will be Tom LaBonge, the L.A. City Councilmember who has introduced motions and held a public hearing about regulating trucks. On the other side, food trucks supporters and owners. Larry Mantle of Airtalk will moderate.

The event at the Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena is free, but unlike many other events hosted by the public radio station, this one is first come, first serve. A handful of trucks, including The Grilled Cheese Truck and Border Grill, will be serving food between 4 and 6 p.m. (regular prices apply) followed by the debate at 6:30 through 8 p.m.

The event will not be aired live, but is expected to be to be broadcast soon.
