It’s been a while since we’ve talked tacos. But nonetheless, tortilla triumphs and what could arguably be described as an upset are in the zeitgeist. First there’s another Taco Tuesday taking over at Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran’s Lolita tonight. Twenty bucks gets you a selection of taco fillings, plus tortillas (duh), and Mexican beans, rice with tomato, jalapeno, red onion, street style roasted butternut squash, and a jicama, green mango, and watermelon radish salad. Bring along tequila and enjoy blood orange, traditional lime, and white peach margarita mixers. On South Street, Tattooed Mom is firing up its Taco Tuesday dealy tonight after taking the last two weeks off.

The bar’s kitchen staff is offering what they call Viva La Verde, a vegetarian mock chicken cooked in green enchilada sauce, and topped with black beans and red onion salsa. T-Mom’s classic beef tacos and vegetarian bean tacos will also be served.

And if you’ve ever dreamed of being your own taco tycoon, you’re in luck. Chris Allen, he’s the Chris behind Chris’s Taco Stand, which has been kicking it on the Temple University campus for the past three years, is moving out of the area. And he’s looking to unload his entire operation, which includes the cart, the spot at Temple, commissary space, a truck to cart the cart around with, and just about everything else needed to run a mobile food vending business. Everything’s inspected, and operating licenses are up to date. Go here for more information about the sale.
