Tamale Lady no longer allowed to sell tamales at Zeitgeist

SFist reports the tragic news that neighborhood icon Virginia Ramos, the Tamale Lady, is no longer allowed to sell her delicious tamales at Zeitgeist due to city codes and regulations and her lack of a permit. This is a serious bummer. Read on for more details from the Tamale Lady herself.

According to her Twitter, Tamale Lady is planning to have her 60th birthday celebration at the Eagle Tavern instead this year. If you have any ideas on how she can sell her tamales in the city legally, reach out to her there, or party with her at the Eagle on the 21st.

    She’s nice but her tamales are WAY over priced. I wouldn’t pay $9 for two tamales even if I was in a full blown black out.

    Her tamales had THE worst masa I’ve ever had. I never once received the tamale I asked for. AND SHE ISN’T EVEN THE ORIGINAL TAMALE LADY!

    Good riddance. Her tamales are way overpriced, and Zeitgeist is a hellhole anyway.
