Thanksgiving is one of those selfless holidays and really the best holiday. I agree with Seth Godin's remark that this is really the only holiday that matters. Think about it, there's no exchanging of gifts and it's a time of reflection, a time for family and friends. So, when you're chowing down on those turkey tamales and turkey tacos, please give back in any way you can, or some turkey might goose you. It's the little things that can make a big difference.

St. Cecilia is the patron saint of music, every year on the day before T-day at the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Sunset Park (Brooklyn) all the Marichi crews gather to pay homage with mass and a mariachi jam session!!!!!

Thanks to LA's Daily Taco for turning me on to this story. On Sunday in Chicago a man gets robbed of tacos twice!!!! First, he paid $41 dollars for 16 tacos!!!!!!! I thought tacos in Chicago would be cheaper! Secondly, after he paid according to Elgin Deputy Chief Jeff Swoboda "He was walking back (to his vehicle) with his tacos. A guy came out with a machete and took his tacos." Fortunately the victim was not hurt.
This sucks and just plain wrong! What has the world come to? Blame it on the recession.

Ah Williamsburg, I love you and I hate you, but at the suggestion of some of you readers to try this place, I finally did. I walked in just in time for lunch, getting there before the predominately hipster crowd arrived, and grabbed a seat at the counter.
What can I tell you that NY Mag and Yelp haven’t already done so… It’s a good date place, the ambiance is good, and they spin records. It’s a good taco spot in a hip setting. They serve tiny tacos for $2.50, and I easily wolfed down FIVE! What can I say I was hungies. The carne asado tacos… good, the carnitas… good, and the lengua tacos were also good (although I am impartial to my homemade ones). Their salsa is excellent and they are not cheap about giving you extra. I wonder if they need an intern, you know like as a tester before the food goes out?
This place is cash only and there’s an ATM machine conveniently located right outside. Take the L train to Bedford Ave. or J,M,Z to Marcy Ave.
I would like to know what ya'll think?
