Taco Sanity

The first wave of Houston food trucks has long since come ashore, and some might say the movement has largely jumped the shark already. The earliest ventures have gone brick and mortar, some long enough ago to have already closed…

Mui Sabroso

Between all the beer sampling, a guy’s gotta eat, and herewith I resume my food truck predations. A contentious customer service call to Comcast ultimately ended with me cancelling my service entirely, free to bask in the freedom a marionette…
