    Following various food trucks throughout Los Angeles, one Tweet at a time, has risen to epic proportions, and now food trucks from all over are converging at one place: The Santa Monica Food Truck Lot.

    What is going on with the trucks carrying the mobile goodness? Don't fret. The trucks aren't grounded and it's not some big food truck cook-off. It is just a group of trucks using an empty lot as a way to provide to the public their great delicacies.

    Where is this Santa Monica Food Truck Lot? It is at the corner of 14th and Santa Monica Boulevard -- it used to be a Christmas tree lot just a month ago and prior to that it was the old Infiniti of Santa Monica car dealership.

    Who is going to be there? You know what you have to do. Follow them on Twitter to scope out who is in and who is out. The Food Truck Lot is following 20 different food trucks at the moment.

    Who won't be there on Monday?The Grilled Cheese Truck. *sigh.

    The "mobile food court" will be open for business from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. according to Laist, and only time will tell if this will be a thriving everyday experience.
