Taco News Roundup ~ August 27th, 2008

2:57 PM PDT on August 27, 2008

It's been an up and down week in the taco world, as corporate entities continue to try to profit on the goodwill and hunger of taco lovers worldwide. Do your part and shun fake taco shops that reheat their "meat" in plastic bags etc. Likewise, be aware that the hustling taquero may not have insurance, and might be the victim of a horrible crime like our taco-brother in South Carolina (see story below). Don't be afraid to tip your taquero when you can! That's the 401k, insurance, and bonus in that oversized styrofoam cup.
