The Big Lot’s parking lot may not seem like party central, but on Wednesdays it’s transformed into a hoppin’ hangout featuring music, entertainment and a culinary spread of ethnic dishes delivered on wheels.
The and a food truck business called Food Truck Mafia have been throwing such soirees at the Big Lots on 200 Serra Wy. for the last few months, according to DJ Aaron Dalugdug of ImageSource Entertainment, which coordinates the music.

The food trucks are brought in by Food Truck Mafia, which also coordinates events in Union City and Fremont.
“We get 10 to 12 trucks out there, we get different ones every week,” Dalugdug said. “And every now and again we bring out different booths and entertainment.”
