We would have continued on (I at least hope) if the waitress ever came back… A night dressed in bittersweet, we finally threw in the towel and acknowledged that apparently there is a socially dignified (or lack thereof) cut-off at which “unlimited tacos” ends. As you can see, we labored late into the night as the dimmers switched on and the pic quality rendered the tacos increasingly unappetizing (it remains a mystery why those last couple tacos look truly so disgusting), but nevertheless a good time it was. If you’d like to try for yourself and join the ranks of those who ate their way to the blacklist, you may do so on Sundays after 5 at Mercadito on Ave B between 11th and 12th. Now go make me proud.
