For flippers, the ideal neighborhoods will exhibit low unemployment rates, rapidly rising home values and robust income growth.

It's not ALL about hard money loans in Washington, DC and fix and flipping your real estate investment properties. We all need to take a breather once in a while and load up on good chow.

The trucks we're talking about first arrived on the scene around '09 and offer gourmet takes on street food and elevated comfort fare. Today, you can find these trucks scattered throughout the city, including Farragut Square, Franklin Square, the Waterfront Metro and Union Station.
