    Have you confirmed this with Hummel?

        It's been a while since I was back home in New Haven. The last I remember the only food trucks around there were down at Long Wharf. Have things changed with regard to food trucks?

          I sent a request for info(RFI in the construction world)to Hummel.  I'll let you know......if I'm still around.

                I've been to Sweeney's. Now that was a long time ago -- about 16 years. And I remember getting a couple of really bad tacos at another truck. I think there were just three trucks there at the time.

                  i'm not surprised a lot of the mexican trucks are sketchy.... i dont like to put other vendors down sometimes i do, many of new haven's trucks and carts are not the cleanest looking...last time i was at sweeneys they were using some type of skinless dirty water dog
