Tacos and Turntables at La Palapa.

Tacos and Turntables at La Palapa.

Monday has definitely become the new Taco Tuesday as I have come across more restaurants doing Taco Monday specials. My usual Monday taco spot is at Patron Mexican Grill with $1 chicken or beef hard shell tacos. But a few Mondays ago, I decided to switch it up and try out La Palapa’s Tacos and Turntables. Every Monday, La Palapa has All You Can Eat tacos for $10 while a DJ mixes some sick beats. The guest DJ rotates every…

Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

I recently took a trip to Millvale, one of my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, for Taco Tuesday. With a new goal to downsize my apartment and save money on rent, Millvale and my current location of Mount Washington were the top picks on my list. Millvale is booming with breweries and restaurants, and a Baby Loves Tacos will be appearing there soon. And with the bike trail nearby, Millvale is my ultimate hobby oasis. During the TacoMania events, I tried some…

West Coast Taco Tour 2019 Continued…

West Coast Taco Tour 2019 Continued…

After spending time in Northern California and South Tahoe with my college friends, I moved onto the second half of my vacation in Southern California. I took a flight from Reno to Los Angeles and then a shuttle an hour and a half up the coast from LA to Ventura. Here, I spent six wonderful days with my Ultimate Frisbee friend Holly. Holly took me in under her wing (and her new condo), and graciously showed me around the local…

T and T Cantina stands for…..

Tacos and Tequila! All the stars lined up on the day after Labor Day. It was a Tuesday. The weather was ever so pleasant. It was Happy Hour. I wanted tacos nearby. I had hungry company. On that magical eve, my Mount Washington neighbor, Ben, joined me for tacos at T and T Cantina, located on the side patio adjacent to Coughlin’s Law. As you may recall from my post about one year ago, I was not a huge fan…

Margs, Tacos, and Trivia at 202 Hometown Tacos

Margs, Tacos, and Trivia at 202 Hometown Tacos

Hey, have you tried the new taco place in Bellevue?? I have been asked that question four times over the last few months so I finally checked out 202 Hometown Tacos. I saw on Instagram that 202 Hometown has event specials like Tuesday karaoke and Thursday trivia where you have the chance of winning free tacos and margs. It did not take me long to decide that I would check out the trivia night and save the people of Bellevue’s…

“Gimmie Juan More Margarita” at Jose and Tony’s

“Gimmie Juan More Margarita” at Jose and Tony’s

UPDATE from 6/5/19: Jose and Tony’s closed after being in the business for over 50 years. I guess I won’t be trying that chicken taco. A new sit-down restaurant will open in its place with dishes spanning from the Domican Republic to Spain. After a few doctor appointments and a much needed nap, I met my friend Matt for tacos and a margarita for National Margarita Day. I picked Jose and Tony’s from my taco list of places to try….

Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Inclined To Get Tacos During Pittsburgh’s Heat Wave Last Tuesday towards the end of Pittsburgh’s heat wave, I ventured out on my bicycle during the 89 degree day. Since my car was unavailable that morning, I figured it would be prime time (minus the heat) to finally take my bike on the incline. Since I am still new to the roads on Mount Washington, I figure the safest way to get to the Cultural District would be to take the…

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

UPDATE:  This nice neighborhood pub has closed.  This space is empty and for sale. Last Tuesday night right before the Penguins versus Senators game during game 6 the Eastern Conference Finals, a group of us decided we should fuel up on tacos to get us ready for the big game. Now I usually go with the group to Jamison’s on West Liberty in Dormont for FREE wings with beer every Tuesday, but once in awhile we will switch it up for…

Big Bacon Tacos – Enjoying Pittsburgh Pork Belly Tacos at Insurrection AleWorks

Big Bacon Tacos – Enjoying Pittsburgh Pork Belly Tacos at Insurrection AleWorks

Work, Nap, Run, Taco Time On a Friday night after work, a nap and a mile run I built up an appetite for tacos. I knew Nate and I would be getting tacos for dinner, but it was a last minute decision to go to Insurrection AleWorks.  We had received word from a friend that they were having tacos on special this weekend.  Since they do not have tacos on their everyday menu (once every 2-3 weeks tacos will be…

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Taco Troubles Two Tuesdays ago took an unexpected turn after I was done training at West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield. After finishing the in class and online new hire courses, I was planning to get a late taco lunch in Lawrenceville, the neighborhood next door. Since I was in the area during the day I figured it would be a great time to try out Smoke.  I have heard wonderful things about their meats, and I didn’t want to attempt…
