I always feel better the next day, having a stiff drink before and water (sparkling rather than still but, hey, let’s live a little) during a party.

Want to Go into the Food-Truck Business? Start on eBay

If you’re thinking about starting a food-truck business, you’re not alone. Grabbing a meal from a kitchen on wheels has swept the nation. Somehow a gourmet Cuban sandwich or Korean BBQ plate tastes better when delivered through a sliding glass window. eBay Motors is on top of the food truck trend with many vehicles on tap, some of them already fully functional and others showing a lot of potential—and novelty value.
