Now that you've got a soundtrack, let me express my extreme frustration with the lack of decent Mexican food in New York City. Am I the only one who has noticed this and is regularly bothered by it? It's not like I routinely crave it... I like to think of myself as a man with a varied palate who can appreciate a good tuna fois gras (pictured left) as much as a cilantro-laiden Mexican speciality. I know, I know... the problem is that there's not as many Mexicans in New York as there are in cities like L.A. or San Francisco, but after 15 years on the prowl, I've come up with exactly ONE good local Mexican restaurant -- the lamely named Taco Grill , on 9th Avenue across the street from Bellevue Bar, which has been the scene of much off-mic FMU DJ debauchery in recent years. (I can't even begin to describe with words what I saw Scott Williams do there once, but I can do a good visual impression of it, so ask me to do it at the next Record Fair -- It involves a cigarette, a zipper, and a birthday hat.)
Anyway, Taco Grill has all the great features missing from the garden variety Tex-Mex chains that dot our shores here in NYC. Which is to say, they have a foosball table in the back, they serve Negra Modelo, and the menu offers burritos that are the size of a child's leg. Hang around long enough and one of the tough old-timers at the bar will challenge you and your dainty hipster pal to a game of foosball, and they won't necessarily be nice about it. But you'll have a great time and be back for more.
This concludes my test of dropping pictures into alternate sides of the blog template and embedding droplinks to RealAudio archives within text.
