This weekend is the opening of Dia De Los Puercos in the city of West Covina. The former truck was a hidden treasure on the streets of LA, and now chef Rick Garcia and crew are opening their restaurant doors this Saturday, August 13th. They opened this past Monday night for a preview event for food bloggers, artists, and local business owners to try their food creations.
