Taco News Roundup ~ April 8, 2008

11:55 AM PDT on April 8, 2008


Once again, the taco lifestyle is under attack. Local politicians, fearing the power and unity that comes with a vast and diverse group of people indulging in street food together, without government interference, continue to try to regulate our city's beloved taco trucks. We pledge to remain strong and to shine a light into the dank, dark corners of council perfidy. What's the real motivation behind the crackdown? Who's really behind this anti-taco movement? We'll be on the case.

RECIPE: Spicy Fish Tacos
EVA: TV Star Distracts Hungry Paps with Tacos
PROPS: A Salute to the Art of the Taco
