¡ASK A MEXICAN!

CRAZY NEWS! Your favorite columna is being turned into a play! ¡Ask a Mexican! will get its first-ever reading this Friday at the prestigious Off-Broadway Atlantic Theater Company as part of their annual Latino Mixfest. A special gracias to my writing partner, Atlantic’s artistic leadership associate Jaime Castaneda (a Tejano, but that’s okay), for wanting to do this. For my Puebla York cabrones interested in attending the reading: it’s free, but you must RSVP — more info at atlantictheater.org. For everyone else — start bugging your local theater company to stage the play come next year!

 

GOOD MEXICAN OF THE WEEK! Since this is my annual food edición, a shout-out to all the original loncheros — those taco-truck pioneers across the country who fought the law and racist ordinances to ensure we can all enjoy a late-night taco. All you luxe lonchera folks slinging “gourmet” food: pay respects to your elders when you park your trucks next to them at the commissary. Yes, gentle readers: roach coaches and “gourmet” food trucks spend their nights together. Imagine that!

 

Ask the Mexican at themexican@askamexican.net, be his fan on Facebook, follow him on Twitter, or ask him a video question at youtube.com/askamexicano!
