Los Angeles International Tamale Festival

You still have until 6pm tonight to get over to MacArthur Park and hit the tamale festival! I'm even thinking about going back again for the one treat I missed, and then I realized that I would have to be crazy to do that. So, I will probably see you there! The tamale eating contest is at 1pm. If things go the way they do on TV, I'm sure it will make you never want to look at another tamale. But that's OK, because there are tortas, tacos, pupusas the size of LP records, and even some new things I had never ever seen before!

Let the fun begin!
