Social Saturdays debuted last month in Logan Square - with a varied menu of food and live music in a new plaza at 2420 Sacramento Avenue.  Sandwiched between the railroad tracks and Target, the plaza has room for over ten trucks, including kiosks hosted by several local restaurants - the best of both worlds covered from 4 to 9 PM on Saturdays until October 29th.
