Today, Mayor Catherine Pugh announced some new options to appease vendors who just want to attract paying customers, with 10 newly designated food truck zones spread across Baltimore.

None of that worked — leading some (or maybe just me) to wonder if the place was cursed. Hopefully this new plan will prove me wrong!
