In the July 2015 National Geographic Magazine story "On a Roll," author David Brindley writes, "Today, thousands of upscale food trucks roam the city streets… broadcasting their whereabouts to sell everything from bespoke grilled cheese sandwiches and luxurious lobster rolls, to handcrafted ice cream cones and freshly popped popcorn.

Towards the end of the night in Venice, CA, a customer orders from the Cool Haus ice cream truck. @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @theimagereview #foodtrucks #losangeles #icecream #venice #firstfridays #coolhaus #night
