    Where do you draw the line when it comes to size?
    I don't know about an exact line, but generally speaking it would probable be something bigger than a suburban or 15p van, which is basically as big as personal vehicles get.

    How about if a person's business was (hypothetically) a food cart, should that be allowed to park on a residential street?
    well presumably that would be a trailer, so yes I would have a problem with that.

    Even if said trailer is less than 15ft?

    Same can be said about almost any appliance repair person. I've used quite a few and was happy with all that I can recall, and then when you need them most they won't respond.

    Any recommendations for local Cheesecake (or other dairy baked goods) options for Shavuos?

    I’m leaning towards Bakerie because they’re likely to have smaller pastries so I can get a variety, otherwise I might end up buying a bunch of full sized dairy cheesecakes which is more than we need/want.
