Tweet of the Day: Tacos for a Jumpstart

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

When you need a jump, you rely on a friendly stranger or maybe AAA. When you've got nearly 65,000 Twitter followers and a full service kitchen, you can tweet for help and offer food in return. That's exactly what Kogi BBQ did last night when they tweeted "Roja out of battery @UCLA any1 can jumpstart us 4 some tacos?" The truck is back on the road today.
