Nomar Hosts Dodger Carne Asada Sunday
The idea was straight from local legend Nomar Garciaparra, and it's one of the best things I've ever heard. A $50 donation to the Dodger Dream foundation gets you into a post-game Carne Asada taco fiesta with Nomar and Mariachis. Yes, it's a bit pricey but it's for charity and will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The taco lifestyle is making inroads at every level of society, and we salute the Dodgers and Nomar for getting onboard. Now, would it be so hard to get a King Taco inside Dodger Stadium?!
