Whether you're strolling along the boardwalk or sunning on the sand, Long Beach has your hunger covered. The city's newly reconstructed boardwalk will be punctuated, at block intervals, with 11 carts serving cold drinks, ice cream, frozen yogurt and, at the western terminus, Gentle Brew coffee. The beach itself, from Georgia Avenue to Maple Boulevard, will be served by vendors as well. And Shoregasboard -- the convocation of food trucks where Riverside Boulevard hits the beach -- is back, with mobile eateries from seven local restaurants including Corazon de Cuba, Sugo Cafe and Lido Kosher Deli.
