So if you are a regular patron of BAR DYNAMITE like myself, you were probably gut wrenched by the fact that your late night drunken source for food... Valentines closed... (Probably more gut wrenched by he food though)

Well fret no more... not only do you have a place to grind some food... but a BETTER place!!

Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop

My girlfriend and I went there this afternoon...

Absolutely love the concept... cool decoration and great food.

they had a special menu and free drinks (soda, horchada, orange bang etc.) in celebration of their grand opening...

Angela wanted the DDT Baked Potato but unfortunately they were still baking
so she asked if she could have DDT fries instead... and they obliged.
Imagine SHRIMP, STEAK, BACON, MUSHROOMS and their SAUCE on a Baked Potato (or in this case fries)...
good lord that was a lot of food...

I had the Quesadilla w/ chicken, onions and peppers.... can't remember the what they called it but it was very tasty.

two highlights of the salsa bar...
pineapple salsa and the hot carrots (we're talking HOT!!!)

we even saw the owner of BAR DYNAMITE ducking in to get a bite to eat!

oh and the owners are SUPER COOL people...

so I give this joint 2 and a half Huricanranas out of 3

I will have pictures and more of their menu on soon or you can go down and check it out for yourself!!

Mark Vallen vs Shepard Fairey....

Left: Still from director Michael Anderson’s 1956 film adaptation of George Orwell’s cautionary story of a dystopic future, 1984. Right: Fairey unmistakably stole his image from the "Big Brother is Watching You" propaganda posters used in Anderson’s film, without crediting the source.

"Most well known for his "Obey Giant" street posters, Shepard Fairey has carefully nurtured a reputation as a heroic guerilla street artist waging a one man campaign against the corporate powers-that-be. Infantile posturing aside, Fairey’s art is problematic for another, more troubling reason - that of plagiarism."
