The Possible Return of Tofu Festival Pushed to April

In late-August when Los Angeles foodies learned of the annual tofu festival's end, there were still rumors that another festival operator was to take over. The Tokyo Service Center who ran the popular festival didn't bring it back this year instead looking for new lucrative yet fiscally conservative events to pursue (think Sake drinking events). An anonymous source originally told LAist that someone was definitely planning on bringing the festival back in November or December, but today we find out there are some new tentative dates. The tipster says it has been pushed to April of 2009, most likely the last weekend for a two-day affair.
