I shouldn’t tweet after a long dinner during which the entree is my son’s dissertation on concept cars wrapped in freshly made tortillas. The odds for typos are good.

Tacos are a meeting place where diverse sets of people can interact honestly when sincere. For that I am thankful.

For the first 4 years, I initiated the Black Friday Taco Tour. But for the last several years, Señor Evangelical hits me up ahead of time to confirm the tradition will continue. It affirms our bond as family regardless of how we approach the world. Tacos are a force for good.

A party where most of the tacos are disappointments. But after nine years of these tours, the tacos are really just an excuse to hang outside the 30-deep Thanksgiving dinner.

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the Black Friday taco tour, during which la esposa‘s right-wing evangelical cousin, his eldest son & his sculptor atheist brother crisscross their hometown in this weird, wonderful bonding experience.

This is white messiah trash worse than that from Bayless. I wonder if this is the “real” Zimmern.

Proud of this story that I wrote for on POC Thanksgivings. It was inspired by all the lovely dishes I saw last yr on my IG feed from my POC friends. So I asked 5 immigrants & 2nd gen Americans to share the dishes they were looking forward to most

It's a thoughtful article. I think about the dilemma a lot, and not just when I'm working on a survey piece. But ultimately it's a crapshoot

What are "crack chips"? Why is quinoa an ingredient in a breakfast taco?

Greatness: 2M Smokehouse in San Antonio and Xochi in Houston make Eater's 2018 best restaurants list.
