Random Act Of Buying Tacos

I tweeted out this photo the other day.  I arrived at this spot Saturday morning after my original food-purchasing plan fell through.  What that means is that Taco Palenque had a long line at the drive-thru, so I went to Plan B: getting down for tacos at Raul's BBQ.

An old man was off to the side, selling tamales out of his rolling basket.

The photo above will go down, for now, as another meaningless moment in time.  In five years, however, its meaning, its significance will change.  Something will be different.    


  1. And everyone will say. ... why didn't we do anything? That was my favorite place! I used to walk by there all the time. I remember when there was a little something there. How can they miss with a classic?

  2. Places come and go. One particular establishment that should've had a longer run was Santa Maria Party House. It was a unique setting with good food.
