Taco News Round Up ~ March 19th, 2007

Bandini's latest find in Commerce

Scientists: Tacos Lead to Brilliant Discoveries
Beer and tacos (two great tastes which go great together, just ask the Gold Room) were the inspiration for rival Marine Biologists who decided to put down the harpoons and collaborate. In the process, they were able to achieve a major breakthrough in the study of the marine world's largest predator, the sperm whale, and its main prey, the giant squid.

Bandini Visits Commerce, Finds Superb Tacos
LA's intrepid taco reporter heads down to the city of Commerce, known for its Casino, it's gargantuan outlet mall and not much else. Well, now you can say that it's got a taco shack worthy of 4.5 stars. Next time I head down to the casino to play cards, I'll know where to stop for edibles on the way.

GoodGoings Going Good
Looks like the peeps over at GoodGoings continue to sniff out good tacos from a wide variety of LA locations. The latest review is of a little stand about a mile south of MacArthur Park at Pico and Alvarado.

Jim Nabors Loves Tacos

Even after his liver transplant, the comic actor best known for portraying Gomer Pyle was willing to risk his health to eat his beloved tacos. You really can't say enough about a man like that. Actually, what he really said is that he found out his organ donor was Mexican, and now he loves tacos. Hmm. Has Nothing to do With Tacos
I got really excited when I found the site "", thinking it would be a site about custom-made tacos, perhaps even virtual tacos which could be delivered to your email or something, perhaps via an "attachment" (I'm not that good with computers). Sadly it's a site for people who customize Toyota Tacomas. I am now saving you the heartbreak of actually visiting the site-- you can thank me later.

Tacos in Song Lyrics
What's the best song in history that mentions tacos? It's hard to say, I really don't know the answer, do you? Here are some suggestions: Beck with "Satan Gave me a Taco", E-40 "Sick Wid It II" (The whole enchilada, the whole taco Motherfucker I`m a capo!), Mobb Deep "Click Click" (My connect is a Cuban named Flaco With my aim, you a human taco Meetin` shells), and there should probably be a mention of Weird Al, who has put the word taco into a half-dozen of his song parodies.
