CityMag cartoonist Ross Bateup puzzles over the intricacies of the latest spat between bricks and mortar businesses and the pop-up venues and vans that are changing the face of Adelaide.
Food truck face-off
The simmering tensions between some bricks and mortar businesses and the pop-up venues and vans that have appeared in the city came to the fore again this week as plans for the 2015 Royal Croquet Club in Victoria Square were discussed.
Ross Bateup casts a sweeping eye over all the competing interests in the situation as the sniping comes to a head. Who eventually prevails – established businesses, Council or mobile food vendors and event organisers – will likely be affected by the outcome of the now-closed City Council elections. On that point, Ross has some light-hearted thoughts on how hair could affect the end result.
