For more than two decades now, restaurants have been giving a cut of a night's proceeds to Dining Out for Life - the benefit for ActionAIDS.

On April 25 this year, not only will 150 restaurants around the region participate.

So will 10 food trucks, which will set up at the municipal parking lot on East Passyunk Avenue between Tasker and Morris Streets from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

I guess the idea is to grab lunch from a participating vendor and then to go to dinner at a participating restaurant.
