July or Bust: L.A. Taco Needs You, Otherwise Say Goodbye to Our Daily Stories

[dropcap size=big]H[/dropcap]ere’s the bottom line: We are at a crossroads and if we don’t get enough members to sign up this month, L.A. Taco will cease to function as a news and feature site. This is not a test. We do not cry wolf, we cry tacos, and this is a loud and sincere cry for your help.

What other DIY publication in Los Angeles will be quick to call out a meeting of a hate group associated with white supremacy and misogyny at a bar in downtown Los Angeles? Give you the most up-to-date taco power ranking in corners of the city that are usually ignored by other publications? And answer the age-old question of whether it is legal or not to pack weed on a flight out of LAX?

L.A. Taco first formed in 2005, a media taquito inspired by tacos, weed, and street art. It has evolved into the unique L.A. publication that you love today, and now needs your help to make sure it keeps evolving for another 14 years.

The people behind your L.A. Taco have a sense of service, a mission, and it guides us. If you love us because of the street-level journalism that we have become known for, now is the time to show your love. If we do not get your support now—today or in the next couple of weeks—we won’t be able to pay for the community journalism that you’ve grown to love and expect from us. 

But we won’t go down without a fight. 

Here are our new member levels, starting as low as … $9.95 a month and up to $99.95 for you big ballers out there who are down for the Taco. That means that for about the price of a good six-pack nowadays, you can help support us! 

What do you get in return? In addition to top-quality gear like our high-quality hoodies, snapbacks, and t-shirts, you’ll also have access to our member-only taco ragers, where you can eat and drink as much as you want.

Check out our last members-only tasting featuring The Goat Mafia, 88 Monks Burmese tacos, and Cerveceria Mundial

So buy us a beer in the form of your a membership, otherwise, so long and thanks for all the tacos.
