What's going on, Albuquerque?
I am pretty sure the Wednesday 10-6 stretch at Talin is the only "official" pod currently going, Ramon...
contrastlife, my vote is for a new pod downtown in addition to the Talin one...pods all over town!
They should really set these up outside of weekday, normal business hours. Setting one up and Talin and one downtown on the weekends - especially Fri and Sat nights - would be a great idea.
^ I don't want to be crass, but too damned bad. The downtown BID is meant to keep existing businesses spruced up (which they do a poor job of - walk around downtown a bit and notice the amount of window etches, litter, and increasingly - graffitti), not advocate for one form of business over another. Many downtowns around the country have active BIDs as well as a healthy food cart business (Austin, Portland, etc). Not to mention, the hours of business likely wouldn't overlap - food carts tend to popular during late-night bar hours, ie after most area restaurants would have closed.
I want to kinda-sorta agree with BurqueBinder on the last point: while additional food options may bring competition, they also bring vibrancy. More food options mean more people walking to them, which means more eyeballs on your storefront. If everyone's raging about the new roach coach and I walk down the street to try it, I might see someone eating a sandwich at another restaurant and think "gee, I'd better try that."
For a dining establishment, foot traffic is vitally important. And if I were looking to open a non-food-related business, I'd want it to be in a part of town that has plenty of restaurants for my employees, and also plenty of foot traffic of potential customers who are walking by on their way to an eatery.
Overall, it's a net gain for business owners to encourage these establishments.
