La Taqueria opening new location

la-taqueria-75

7×7 reports:

La Taqueria, home of America’s best burrito, is opening up a second location on Thursday. But as splendid and amazing as this news is, you’ll be sad to know that the new location is in Turlock, a small town near Modesto and a two hour drive from San Francisco. The second restaurant will run by the owner’s daughter, Irene Gonzales, and will have the same recipes and secret menu as the original. There will also be more meats on the menu: al pastor, grilled chicken, and shrimp, as well as a shrimp cocktail (which just may be reason enough to make the trek). [link]

Turlock here we come!

  2. Delilah – Tom Jones
  3. Dawn – The Four Seasons
  4. Julia – The Beatles
  5. Veronica – Elvis Costello
  6. Beth – KISS

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
