26 Tacos in One Sitting: Local Record
In Watsonville, CA, there is a taco truck with lunch-time lines around the block. They also have a record of 26 tacos eaten in one sitting. If you can beat that, you eat for free. One intrepid columnist, Ricardo Diaz, for thecalifornian.com tried to beat the record, got to 15 tacos and gave up. Still, we support this taco journalist and praise him for his hard work and dedication to covering the taco lifestyle. Next road trip from LA to SF will require a stop at Taquitos Nayarit, which is halfway between Monterey and Santa Cruz, just of Highway 1.

San Pedro Fuzz Bust Taco Trucks
In a frontal assault on the taco lifestyle, more than 25 officials from health, police, sanitation and public works departments launched a synchronized "take-down" of taco trucks on Pacific Avenue. It's a popular spot for those getting out of bars to grab a quick bite-- a bite that many say is essential for getting home well-fed after a night out. Truck owner Hector Guttierez was quoted by the Daily Breeze as saying, "I don't see why a task force of two dozen police, undercover agents, detectives and the vice squad are needed to take care of four lunch trucks. It's excessive. I think they could have used their manpower to take care of crime in a better way." I couldn't agree more-- it's clear that the city of San Pedro does not understand the benefits mobile tacos provide to the city as a whole, and instead is focusing on the actions of a few drunk customers rather then the service and food the city's taco trucks are providing.

2007 Queens Taco Crawl
An enterprising soul in Queens is having a taco crawl. The taco lifestyle is spreading across the country, and events like this are part of it. Our NY edition should be up and running soon (?), so it's exciting to see that grassroots taco love is growing in the Apple.
