Art Walk to limit food trucks, honor infant who died

Food trucks will be kept outside the core area of this Thursday's Downtown Art Walk, the first to be held since the death last month of Marcello Vasquez when a car went up on the sidewalk. Erica Friend, a 25-year-old artist, is organizing the ÔÇťArtist Benefit Show for Baby Marcello Vasquez" on Thursday night. More Art Walk preview from Ed Fuentes at View From a Loft.

Also downtown: Angelique Cafe, the French eatery where Spring Street begins at Main, has closed.
