This is a very exciting time of year for us, but probably not for the reasons you’d expect. It’s not the imminent family visit, or the loads of candy, or even the fact that we get to abstain from presents on Christmas (finally!).
While all those things are glad-making, what’s getting our undies in a bunch this very second is the fact that Burrito Eater’s Slab Scrum 2008 has reached the semi-finals, and it features a really strong bunch of taquerias. The competition must be fierce right now!
The contest has come down to four: Taqueria El Castillito, which Charles already awarded 8.33 mustaches, and Taqueria San Francisco, El Norteno, and Papalote, which have yet to receive a final, judge-y visit. God, this is better than the Orange Bowl!
